An archaeological open-air museum in the extinct settlement of Šoldov near Štrba will open. The village is building it by more or less using its own money.

“In this locality there is also a bridge, a well and the foundations of an original church,” said mayor of Štrba, Michal Sýkora, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
