In the club near the park the municipality of Beckov organized an initial meeting with the local community of the friends of Beckov castle and the villagers, where they presented the objective of the renovation of the Western Palace. At present it is partially in a state of disrepair.
The project is a part of the overall restoration of the upper castle. After the reconstruction, covered areas should be created in the palace premises, which will serve not only for exhibitions, but also for programme, commercial or educational purposes. The meeting was attended by Ing. Mária Jurčacková as the project manager. JUDr. Mgr. Tomáš Michalík, PhD. as the person responsible for the preparation of the application, the Mayor of the municipality Mr. Daniel Hladký and Mgr. Peter Pastier for the management of Beckov castle.
The DRAGON project received a grant from the EEA and Norway and the state budget of the Slovak Republic for the restoration of the western palace and interior equipment in the amount of €983,557. The goal of the project is to bring the West Palace and the entire area into a form that will respect and emphasize the preserved historical values from the High Gothic and Renaissance periods.
