Roland’s Palace, one of the most beautiful buildings on the Main Square in Bratislava, which was damaged at the end of November 2018 by fire, should finally regain its original look during the second quarter of 2021.
“We are completing reconstruction of the façade which was damaged by fire,” said Silvia Nosková Illášová, spokesperson for the Kooperativa insurance company, as cited by the TASR newswire, adding that they are also working on the reconstruction of the interior of the Art Nouveau building, its roof and the courtyards.
The upper plaster part of the façade, including its stucco ornaments, has already undergone a complete restoration. The stone panelling studded with brass nuts was remounted onto the façade and the windows of the café on the ground floor have been replaced. The building will also get back the so-called Esslinger blinds, which will restore its original look.
