The unstable inner castle rock under the citadel of Orava castle will be reconstructed in the coming weeks. Technical modifications should ensure the safety of the castle for tourists.
There are rocks falling from the castle rock. The transfer of the needed material and devices was ensured by a helicopter.
“In the past, the castle rock was cleared of bushes and small rocks every April,” said Mária Jagnešáková, director of Orava Museum of P.O.Hviezdolav, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Weather causes problems
She added that they want to do it complexly to preserve Orava castle for other generations. That’s why the reconstruction of the rock is very much needed, according to her.
