THE MASARYK Yard, where the president of the first Czechoslovak Republic, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and his daughters spent their summers, is currently being reconstructed.

Lying in the Pstruš borough of the municipality of Vígľaš (in the district of Detva), the Masarykov dvor complex is being repaired by the Agrosev Detva company, which has owned it for several years. The company received money from EU funds, which will go toward the reconstruction of two farm buildings where a boarding house will be established, together with a restaurant and a congress hall. However, the renovation of the whole sports and recreational complex will require about €7 million.

The complex, with about half a dozen buildings, was built at the start of the 20th century, the SITA newswire wrote. The photograph below shows one of the most architecturally significant buildings in Pstruš, which is more than 100 years old.
