Slovakia will welcome 68 international volunteers this summer, the not-for-profit organisation INEX Slovakia wrote in a press release. They will spend one to three weeks volunteering in different regions across the country.

During eight volunteer work camps held over the summer, they will among other things help renovate castles in Brekov and Šebeš (both in Prešov Region), and Uhrovec (Trenčín Region).
