Language of the descriptions
The palace was designed in the 17th century by an architect Tylman van Gameren. The client was the Cardinal, Archbishop of Gniezno and Primate of Poland Michal Radziejowski. In the second half of the 18th century, the whole complex became the property of the magnate Radziwill family and remained so until the end of World War 2, when it became state property. It is often described as one of the most beautiful magnate residences in Poland. Today the palace is a museum. Among other objects, on display you will see the head of Niobe from the IV century and the staircase banister is decorated with thousands of Delft tiles.
The museum in Nieborow is part of the National Museum in Warsaw.
French and English style park stretches in a rectangle behind the castle. Here you can switch off your mobile phone and enjoy the nature. Admire a romantic avenue of lime trees, geometrically cut ornamental shrubs and trees. The main element is an L-shaped pond. Here and there farm buildings are scattered. If you walk to the edge of the park in the north, you may even see a tractor working the wheat fields belonging to the palace. Free-standing statues add a finishing touch to the park.
What else to see in the area?
Park in Arkadia | 4,7 km |
The Park in Arkadia is part of the same palace complex located a five-minute drive from Nieborow. You can buy a combined ticket for both parks and the palace.
Town of Lowicz | 10 km |
It is also worth visiting the town of Lowicz that is known for its very strong local culture, epecially colourful folklore with traditional outfits and decoration. Some refer to Lowicz as the “colourful capital of the Polish province”. We recommend walking along Zdunska Street from the Old Market to the New Market. Here you can see the provinciality of small towns in Poland: tiny buildings lined up along the main street.
The palace and the park are barrier-free.
