The final bill for the reconstruction of Krásna Hôrka Castle, situated in the Košice Region, will be much higher than originally expected.

The government originally planned to spend €8 million on the castle which was destroyed by a fire in 2012. The recent proposal submitted by the Culture Ministry and approved by the government, suggests that the total expense will amount to nearly €35 million.

“The budget is based on available information, the current state of research at Krásna Hôrka, and the project documentation,” said Culture Minister Ľubica Laššáková, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
