Photographer's Note

I can post now many classic views such that are not known on TE :). Here the view of the castle in Nesvizh, Belarus. Architectural, Residential and Cultural Complex of the Radziwill Family at Nesvizh is the UNESCO Heritage site, together with Mir castle. From 1921 to 1939 the complex was located in Poland and was considered one of the most beautiful Polish castles in the Kresy region.rnThe estate was owned by the Radziwiłł magnate family from 1533, when it was awarded to Mikołaj Radziwiłł and his brother Jan Radziwiłł after the extinction of the Kiszka family. Since the Radziwiłłs were one of the most important and wealthy clans of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, it was there that the Lithuanian Archive was moved in 1551. In 1586 the estate was turned into an ordynacja.rnAfter the Union of Lublin the castle became one of the most important residences in the central part of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.rnrnToday very early in the morning I had my flight from Almaty to Minsk. Then I went to visit two important castles in Belarus -Mir and Nesvizh. After that I went to Baranovichi. Tomorrow I go to Brest and then back to Poland.
