Renovation of the historic building on the Main Square in Bratislava, which was damaged at the end of November 2018 by fire, is still under preparation. Bratislava’s Regional Monuments Board has already approved an architectural study of the building renovation and the project documentation for renovation of the main facade affected by the fire according to Silvia Nosková Illášová, spokesperson of the building’s owner, the insurance company Kooperativa, informed the TASR newswire.
