Parliament passes new theatre plan

THE SLOVAK Parliament approved Culture Minister František Tóth's draft plan for the completion of a project that has been dragging on for two decades: the new Slovak National Theatre (SND) building.

The new plan, approved on July 1, envisages a loan of Sk900 million (€23.5 million) from the state budget, the TASR news agency wrote. The loan would be repaid using proceeds from the sale of the current SND-owned property. Tóth plans to use the building for congresses, exhibitions and symposia, in addition to the regular theatre needs.
