Nesvizh Castle claims Europa Nostra 2016 accolade

Nesvizh Castle has won a high award. The national historical and cultural museum-reserve was awarded the prize Europa Nostra 2016. This is a pan-European federation of organizations working in the field of cultural heritage.

The jury was impressed by the monumental work done in just a few months. The project to create the museum included the beautification of 30 halls and stock storing 20,000 items.

Now the castle is visited by 400,000 visitors annually. The jury also noted that the museum keeps the connection with the previous owners of the palace - the descendants of the Radziwill family.

By the way, this is the second time Europa Nostra was bestowed on a project from Belarus. In 1993, this prize went to Mir Castle.
