The starting price for the flat is €1.67 million, including garage parking. The auction should take place on March 16 in the Hradná Brána hotel in Devín near Bratislava.
Those who intend to attend are required to pay a collateral of €49,000.

Bašternák was able to get rid of most of his property. His villa under Slavín Hill in Bratislava now belongs to his wife Tatiana. Neither did his luxury cars go to the state.
This property might still be put up for auction, if the administrator challenges the transactions in court. The Index economic website reported at the end of January that she would do so.
