The painting will transport citizens to the town a century younger. Its author, street art artist Ivan Jakušovský, is finishing the last one picturing the train station.
The painting of seven scenes of old Prievidza started four years ago on the blocks of flats in Zapotôčky.
“The idea came about four years ago. When I was painting in the surroundings by coincidence, one man – a caretaker of the block of flats that was the first in the series – came to see me,” said Jakušovský, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “There, people learn everything and pay everything on their own, I just arrived to make it come true.”
