Nesvizh (Niasviž) [1] is a city in Minsk Province, Belarus.

Get in

By car

Nesvizh (the town is marked at road signs as "Niasvizh") is situated to the south-east of M1/E30 highway between Minsk and Baranavichy. Use the P-11 road through Haradzeya (direct and broad) or P-54 through Stoubtsy (narrow); both of them have intersections with M1/E30.

By bus

Buses to Nesvizh are departing from Minsk autostations "Central" and "Eastern". Usually Nesvizh is not the final destination, but Pinsk or another city. There are 4 or 5 buses a day from Minsk and they cost around 50,000 roubles.

By train

Ordinary suburban trains (economy class ER-9 elektrichka) stop in Haradzeya/Gorodeya station, but don't confuse these trains with business-class suburban trains EPR — they don't have a stop there. The bus from Haradzeya to Nesvizh is going soon after every suburban train from Minsk. It is departing from the stop right behind the railway station. It is the cheapest way to come to Nesvizh. It will take from 1.5 to 2 hours to travel from Minsk to Haradzeya and 25 minutes from Haradzeya to Nesvizh.
