Kia village nearly ready

THE SO-CALLED "Korean village" in Krasňany, near Žilina, which will provide accommodation for managers of Kia Motors Slovakia, is almost complete.

Žilina mayor Ján Slota said that Sk400 million (€1.1 million) of the planned Sk529 million (€1.4 million) in costs had been spent so far.

Severe weather has prevented the exterior façades from being completed, but the individual apartments are already furnished and ready to be occupied, SITA news agency wrote.

The buildings should be completed during the spring and will accommodate around 100 Kia managers.
