Nesvizh palace of Radziwills
Nesvizh Palace is considered the country’s most beautiful palace by the people of Belarus. Its richly diverse architecture and attractive gardens make it one of the most popular tourist attractions in Belarus.
The history of Nesvizh Palace
The estate and town was acquired by the Radziwil family in the middle of the 16th century, and they stayed there until 1939 when they were expelled by the invading Red Army.
The foundation stone of Nesvizh Palace was laid in 1584. It was rebuilt many times and as a consequence has features of manyarchitectural styles including:
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.
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.
One of the most interesting attractions in Belarus. The outside is nice, in the middle, on average,
Very attractive for tourist and contains many elements which can appeal your brain. A good place for day spent and to learn about the country and its history.
Beautiful well maintained castle is worth a look.
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.
A beautiful castle, surrounded by a beautiful Park and lake fantastic. I saw !!!
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
a nice castle with picturesque surroundings and an exposition inside, also quite good souvenir shop inside and around
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.
