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.

The aim of the project is to create a place where visitors can relax, barbecue, play sports, and enjoy other cultural activities. The project should be completed by the second half of September.

Banská Štiavnica is a completely preserved medieval mining town in central Slovakia. It lures tourists with rich history, UNESCO monuments, and beautiful nature. It is also the birthplace of Marina, the subject of the longest love poem in the world by Andrej Sládkovič.
