- The former capital of the Radziwill family has Belarusian moguls who left architectural works, which today bear historical and cultural value. There are 30 museum halls in the Nesvizh Castle. Historical museums of Belarus presented their expositions. I'm not talking about my architectural decoration and interior design. There are collected works of famous masters of the Middle Ages.
The exposition was organized jointly with the Belarusian Embassy to Kazakhstan as part of the international Dialogue through Culture project. The event is scheduled for the 25th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The exhibition is open until December 4
