Residents beneath Trenčín castle go home

THE STREETS below the medieval castle in the northwestern city of Trenčín have been opened to the public again, three weeks after they were closed because part of the castle walls collapsed. Only one restaurant remains closed, still under threat from further damage to the castle wall.

Around 1,100 metric tons of material fell from the castle wall on March 7, causing damage estimated at Sk10 million. Two rows of steel barriers have been put up to protect the houses from more falling stones.

City police are still guarding the castle, which houses valuable artefacts. The castle will probably not reopen to visitors before May.
