Nesvizh Palace is UNESCO World Heritage site and considered the country’s most beautiful palace in Belarus. Nesvizh Palace construction began in 1584. However, since that day it was rebuilt numerous times. Over 400 years of its history, the palace had absorbed the attributes of different architectural styles: Renaissance and Classicism, Baroque and Rococo, Art Nouveau and Neoclassicism. However the castle’s ten interconnected buildings, including the palace, the galleries, the residence and the arsenal have always been one architectural whole.
The castle was built and occupied by the Radziwill family from the 16th to 20th centuries. It withstood numerous assaults of Russian troops in the 17th and 18th centuries, later was partially destroyed by the Swedes. The renovation works began in the 18th century and marked a new stage in the ensemble’s development. The castle’s interiors were renovated, and a magnificently beautiful landscape park in English style was designed. Today the park is a particular attraction, with ornamental lakes, and beautifully landscaped gardens.
