Nieborow
The garden in Nieborow (of Radziwill family) was created in the French style. It is located just a few kilometres away from other very famous Polish garden - Arkadia, situated near Lowicz.

The garden was created at the end of XVII century, and then enlarged about one hundred years later.

There are flower parterres, located just on the south side of the palace and boxwood mazes. Starting from the end of this part, there is a main linden avenue running to the end of the garden and being its main axis. It is situated perpendicularly to the building and gives the view to surrounding fields. Various hornbeam-linden bosquets are located symmetrically on both side of the main avenue. Smaller avenues, lying across to main one, are closed by small interiors in a shape of green tower.

The main avenue is ended by so-called "aha" border, which gives an impression that the park is longer than in reality.

There are also some elements typical for Rococo style, among other sunken garden (small area set below the level of the ground surrounding it to obtain better view). The road from palace in the west direction runs to the water canal. It is located a little aside, where the park changes into the landscape one. The water channel is, beside flower parterre and linden avenue, the most important element of this park although its location.

The great water canal has a shape of an L letter and creates two axes: one minor axis, leading from the flower parterre, parallel to the palace line and the second main one, perpendicular to the palace and parallel to the main avenue of the garden. This axis is closed by the pond to emphasize its importance.

Behind the water canal, ending the formal French part, there is a landscape park. On the eastern side of the garden there is an Old Orangerie. At present there is a collection of plants there.

There are many interesting plants, planted in this garden, but the special attention should be paid to Platanus, which is the oldest tree of this kind in Poland, planted in 1770.
