The estate of the Narkevichi-Iodko “Nadneman”
The Belarusian naturalist, inventor, physician, professor of electrography and magnetism Yakov Narkevich-Iodko organized a meteorological station in his estate Nadneman. In the XIX century he made significant scientific discoveries in physics, medicine, agriculture. It is known that progressive experiments related to the use of electricity in various spheres of life were carried out on the estate. During the heyday, a free hospital (a prototype of a modern sanatorium) worked on the estate, where free assistance was provided to poor villagers. Thanks to his experiments, in the mid-1890s, Yakov Narkevich-Iodko was able to develop a new method of treatment – electrotherapy, which was successfully used in clinics in Rome, Paris and Florence. The treatment with electricity was supplemented with magnetotherapy and hypnotherapy, gymnastics, and healing with local mineral waters. At the beginning of the XX century, the estate is slowly falling into disrepair. Today, the estate is being revived, the white entrance gate has acquired a new look. It is planned to open a museum inside brama in the near future, where they will tell about the estate and about the activities of Yakov Narkevich-Iodko.
