IN SHORT

Buildings closed for presidential visit

THERE is speculation that stringent security measures for the Bush-Putin summit will necessitate the complete take-over of some buildings by security forces.

Certain traffic routes, and even Bratislava airport, may also be closed, according to the daily Pravda.

The Mirbachov Palace and the Primaciálny Palace in the city center are expected to be off-limits to the public because the presidents' wives are scheduled to visit both these buildings during their stays.

Laura Bush and Ludmila Putina will probably view a tapestry exhibition and the work of Slovak artist Albín Brunovský.

Part of Bratislava castle has been closed for several weeks while undergoing renovations for the Bush-Putin summit on February 24.
