The palace in Nieborow was built during the years 1690-1696 by one of the greatest Baroque architects, the Dutchman Tylman van Gameren. Helena and Michal Radziwill are responsible for the palace current classical appearance, the result of reconstruction work done in the late 18th cent. Elements of the palace were last reconstructed during the years 1921-1930 by Janusz Radziwill, and since then the residence has remained virtually unchanged, and preserves the original interiors of its 18th and 19th cent. rooms. The palace belonged to the Radziwill family until 1945; after WW2 a museum was opened with a lovely park with Baroque gardens surrounding the palace.

A 7 km linden tree alley leads from Nieborow to the romantic English style park of Arkadia laid out in the 18th century by Princess Helena Radziwill, the lady of Nieborow palace. The park is full of various decorative elements and rare specimens of trees and shrubs.In the words of its creator, the park was to be an 'idyllic land of peace and happiness'... and so it is until today.
In summer, especially during the elaborate celebration of Corpus Christi, it is worth a while to visit the nearby town of Łowicz, with its originally Gothic collegiate church (15th cent.), remodelled later several times. Łowicz is a well known centre of folk arts and crafts, but the most spectacular event of the region is the long Corpus Christi procession - most of its participants are dressed in traditional, colourful costumes.
