SNM estimates that visitors will be allowed to return to the castle by the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018. After a provisional covering of the castle, it has now been roofed with inflammable red burnt roof-tiles (Vienna style), while parts of the roof and all six turrets are covered with copper. Before the fire, the roof was made of wooden shingles, Korzár regional daily wrote.
