The garden under the Old Castle in Banská Štiavnica is undergoing renovation thanks to the skilful hands of the Tourism Association of Banská Štiavnica. Volunteers are building a gazebo here, renewing the existing fireplace and will clean the castle surroundings in autumn.

“We would like to situate the gazebo at the back part of the garden,” said Martin Macharik from the Tourism Association in Banská Štiavnica, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
