Selected rooms in Stredný hrad of Bojnice castle are currently“occupied” by restorers. Their aim is to conserve and renovate wall paintings in this part of the national cultural site. Works should finish by the end of this year.

“We are talking about wall paintings in the first and second floor of the castle – specifically Modrý salon, Veľká hall, Zelený salon, Mramorová hall and Erben’s hall,” explained cultural-promotional manager of Slovak National Museum – Museum Bojnice, Petra Gordíková for TASR newswire.
