In the village Vorotsevichi, Ivanovsky district, it will be interesting to visit museum dedicated to life and work Napoleon Orda. This man was a great enthusiast and philanthropist, who is remembered in history as an artist and composer. You must have seen his drawings sights of Belarus, and if you think that you haven’t seen it, then remember, for example, an old bill 100 000 rubles with the image of the Nesvizh castle - this is just his work. Why did the museum appear in Vorotsevichi? It's pretty simple, I was born and raised here Napoleon Orda.
