A project to protect the interior features and wooden structures of the Forgách house at Slane castle near Košice, has been successfully completed.

“We have been working for several years to preserve the castle and make it thrive so it would be as attractive as possible for visitors,” said Eduard Gajdoš, director of the civic association Save Castle Slanec.

After patching up the holes, it should be possible to renew the extinct picture gallery and museum installed by the last owners of the Forgách house.
