The work to renew Slanec Castle in eastern Slovakia near Košice continues with another bricklaying season, the TASR newswire reported.

“This year we are continuing in the interior of Nebojsa Tower. We started with the renovation of the third floor where the stairs will be installed to connect all floors,” said Jozef Bela, mayor of Slanec village, as quoted by TASR.

The entrance staircase will also be renovated, and the castle wall with the most significant feature – a Gothic window – will be stabilised. This year’s work includes the creation and setting of the window portals.

After the work is completed the tower will serve as a lookout tower for tourists.
