The Nesvizh Palace and Park Complex is a unique monument of Belarusian architecture and landscape design entered into the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. The palace's owners, the most famous from whom the Radziwill family was, rebuilt it many times, that's why it has the characteristics of different styles.
