Every Slovak knows the cartoon of the old man – Deduško Večerníček - coming out of his cottage house, lighting the stars up with his stick with the help of his white dog in the intro for the TV bedtime story.
His house has a real model in the village of Nová Sedlica, the easternmost point of Slovakia. The house is a National Cultural Monument and will undergo reconstruction.
Public broadcaster RTVS will take care of the reconstruction, buying the land from the village where Večerníček’s house will be renovated. The house was bought as well.
The roof was leaking and the village covered the straw roof with a waterproof tarpaulin. Clay plastering was falling down in many sections.
