Baroque mansion to house treatment centre

A 200-YEAR-OLD mansion will soon be turned into a therapy centre for drug addicts.

The Culture Ministry recently approved funding of Sk4 million for the reconstruction of a mansion in central Slovakia's Licice village, near Revúca. A Licice-based association called Per te, which came up with the idea, does not yet know when the mansion could start serving its new purpose.

"First we just have to reconstruct the building", said Per te's Ľubica Lázoková.

That, however, might take years because all changes to the late Baroque-style building must be consulted with experts.
