Hello Sergey,

Using "ANGLE FOLLOW" in the label block will provide labels that follow 
the curvature of the line segment that is being labelled.  Please note, 
that if the line segment is shorter than the label, the label will hang 
off the end of the line unless you use MINFEATURESIZE AUTO in the label 
block as well.
