The agreement to curb the sum to be spent was sealed between the head of the Parliament Office, Michal Nižňan, and Váhostav, the company handling the renovation.

"I'm glad we've rounded off our five months of negotiations to such a satisfactory conclusion," said Nižňan, pledging that every euro will be spent effectively.

Renovation work on the castle was launched in 2008. The areas that are currently under reconstruction are expected to be opened to the public on parliament's Open Day on November 17.
