Nieborów Palace is an aristocratic residence located in the village of Nieborów in Poland. Built in the 17th century by one of the greatest Baroque architects, the Dutchman Tylman van Gameren, the building belongs to one of the most renowned Poland’s aristocratic residences and serves as a museum of interior design of palace residences from the 17th to the 19th century, based on the surviving furniture and collections, featuring portraits of eminent personalities of the era, several thousand drawings and sketches, books (from the 16th century), porcelain and textiles.Nieborów originates from the end of the 12th century with the creation of a village including a church built in 1314 and a wooden mansion. At the beginning of 16th century a Gothic-Renaissance manor was built. It lasted until the end of 17th century, by which time Niebórow was owned by Nieborowski clan of the Prawda (Truth) Coat of Arms.The residential complex consists of a palace, coach house, manufactory, outbuilding, orangery and two parks - a formal park and an English-style park.HistoryA wooden mansion, which had been there since the Middle Ages, was replaced by a much more representative, Gothic-Renaissance building in the 16th century. The erection of the current residence was ordered by the contemporary archbishop of Gniezno Michał Radziejowski, and it commenced in 1690. The residence was finally built in 1696 on the primate’s grounds, previously owned by the Nieborowski clan.After the archbishop’s death, the residence was inherited by Jerzy Hipolit Towianski and Konstancja of Niszczycki clan. Their son Krzysztof sold the estate to Aleksander Jakub Lubomirski and Karolina Fryderyka von Vitzthum. Since the year 1736, it was owned by brothers Stanislaw and Jan Jozef Lochocki.

  • I don’t recommend visiting the palace. It’s way overpriced for what you get. It was a bit bizarre too- there were only a few rooms to see and there were guards in each, engrossed in their phones. I...

  • Wonderful place that used to belong to Belarusian aristocrats Radziwils. Magnificent palace and picturesque park. Really worth your time
  • Lovely 18th century aristocratic residence with beautiful gardens. Beautiful touches and ornaments. Palace can be viewed from inside and features a museum. Good place for a quick stop or a romantic adventure. One of the hidden gems of Polish countryside. Close to a major highway. Arkadia fairy gardens also located nearby. With good gastronomy base.
  • The museum situated at an old palace complex. Perhaps it is important to the Polish history, but it has not much to offer to the tourists. The landscape is serene and cool. A very good place for hangout from Warsaw in the green during a weekend. It is magnificent during spring, summer or autumn. Though it is part of the Polish National Museum, yet I did not find the exhibits interesting. There are dusts everywhere. The compound holds a century old Platen tree.
  • Very nice
  • Magical place, pretty much all year round but especially spring time when everything is blooming and bursting with green. Definitely worth every penny, give it a shot if you're nearby 😊❤️
