A big hole dug in the pavement by the Slovak parliament building has been catching the eyes of passers-by for a week now. The Chancellery of the National Council of the Slovak Republic is planning to erect a 30-metre-high flagpole on the site, the Sme daily reported.
Such a high mast is somewhat unusual in neighbouring countries, with only Budapest having a 27-metre-tall flagpole.
“It was Parliament's Speaker Andrej Danko's request to have a mast higher than in Budapest,” said Danko's spokesperson Tomáš Kostelník, as quoted by Sme.
The price of the yet-to-be-erected flagpole, the height of which is equivalent to a 10-storey-building, remains unknown at this point.
