In 1770 Nesvizh Palace was seized by Russian forces and the Lithuanian Archive removed and sent to Saint Petersburg where it remains to this day. Much of the artwork was distributed among Russian nobility. In the late 19th century Nesvizh Palace was restored by the Radziwil family who also designed one of largest landscape gardens in Europe on the estate. After World War II Nesvizh Palace was used as a Sanatorium and the gardens became neglected.

In 1994 the estate was designated the national historical and cultural reserve and in 2006 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The magnificent castle and Park!!! Outside, however, much more interesting than inside. Inside was left untouched, not so much. In Soviet times, was the sanatorium of the fourth control in the post was long restored. There was a fire. But the architecture is amazing. You need to see.

Великолепный замок и парк!!! Снаружи, однако, намного интереснее, чем внутри. Внутри осталось нетронутым не так много. В советское время был санаторий четвертого управления, в постсоветское время долго реставрировался. Был пожар. Но архитектура изумительная. Необходимо увидеть.

Looks very beautiful at any side, from any angle and in any season. Interiors have been renovated and don't look old. Great old park is around the castle.

Absolutely all paid for. In the stuffy castle. Food a big problem. The meaning of the problems is that in addition to kebabs and "Belarusian pizza around the castle to find nothing failed. I am sad to write about it, but it seems that the castle before reconstruction was better.

Абсолютно все платно. В замке душно. С едой большие проблемы. Смысл проблем в том, что кроме шашлыков и "белорусской пиццы" вокруг замка найти ничего не удалось. Мне грустно об этом писать, но кажется, что замок до реконструкции был лучше.

Very beautiful, along with the Mir castle. Arrived at 6 PM, so were able to Park at the gate to the Park. Not sorry that visited. For an evening stroll very. In the castle itself did not fall, for it was already closed. Ticketing didn't work. The Park is not the most well maintained, but it is offered and the beach and yacht tour.

Очень красивый, наряду с мирским замком. Приехали в 6 вечера, поэтому смогли припарковаться у ворот в парк. Не пожалели, что посетили. Для вечерней прогулки очень даже то. В сам замок не попали, ибо уже был закрыт. Билетные кассы не работали. Парк не самый ухоженный, но предлагается и пляж, и прогулка на яхте.

Не понравился, все платно. начиная со стоянки, заканчивая просто входом во двор. вокруг парк неухоженный. Внутри слишком много пластика. Тетеньки приставали по каждой мелочи. в подвале кассы где бахилы, можно задохнуться.

Be sure to visit if you are in Belarus (along with Mir castle). Very beautiful place, nice, helpful staff, many answered questions about the displays and told something different. I am very sorry that did not manage to book a tour, because later arrived. On the reverse side of the lock on the gates of the Park hangs "a brick", though it can be used as the entrance to the hotel, and at night, the gates to the Park locked up

Обязательно к посещению, если вы находитесь в Беларуси (наряду с Мирским замком). Очень красивое место, хороший, отзывчивый персонал, многие отвечали на вопросы по экспозициям и рассказывали что-то свое. Очень жалею, что не успели заказать экскурсию, т.к. поздно приехали. С обратной стороны замка на воротах парка висит "кирпич", хоть его и можно использовать как подъезд к отелю, и на ночь ворота в парк запирают

Tourist place with large crowds of people. The castle has been restored recently and looks neat. Inside there is a Museum with exhibits. Near the castle there is a Park and ponds, along which you can walk and enjoy the surrounding scenery. But do not forget that in the city too have something to look at, town hall, Church, arch.

Туристическое место с большими толпами народу. Замок отреставрирован недавно и внешне выглядит опрятно. Внутри есть музей с экспонатами. Рядом с замком есть парковая зона и пруды, вдоль которых можно гулять и наслаждаться окружающими пейзажами. Но не стоит забывать, что в самом городе тоже есть, что посмотреть, ратуша, костёл, триумфальная арка.

This Belarusian castle is fantastic. It is more interesting than most English catles, and it is comparable to classical Welsh castles.
