On the ground floor of the castle, the reconstruction of the central heating and the entire heating system, which is also accompanied by the replacement of risers, has been underway for several months.
“At the same time, renovation of the masonry and plastering of all rooms is taking place here, and the floors are also being repaired. The reconstruction of the electrical installation was also necessary,” said Silvie Hříbková, head of the cultural department of the Kvará town hall, who is in charge of the reconstruction of the castle.
The costs of this part of the repairs are calculated at five million crowns and are covered by the city from its budget. “Thanks to this complete renovation, mainly on the ground floor of the castle, wonderful exhibition spaces will be created in this wing, which we want to officially open on June 23 with the opening of a unique multimedia exhibition called Rudolf II. comes to life,” added Hříbková.
In addition to the premises in the west wing, part of the castle’s windows were also replaced thanks to a subsidy from the region, and the ground is also being insulated and the boiler room is being reconstructed. The costs of replacing the windows and reducing energy efficiency exceed another eight million crowns.
Due to the complexity of the construction work and the associated relocation of the permanent castle exhibition, the monument has not yet been opened to the public. As a result, even the traditional Easter markets could not take place in the premises of the castle.
