In Slovakia, a violent fire damaged a UNESCO World Heritage site

Seven historic buildings on Holy Trinity Square in the town of Banska Stiavnica in Slovakia were badly damaged by fire.

The fire broke out, according to preliminary data, due to a short circuit in one of the buildings where the Love Bank museum is located, dedicated to the heroine of the longest romantic poem by Andrey Sladkovich ” Marine”. From there, the fire spread to the buildings of the archives, the art school, the pizzeria and others.

“Many roofs burned, in some (buildings) even entire floors,” Novinky.cz quoted Slovak Prime Minister Eduard Heger as saying.

There are no injuries or casualties.

The historic part of Banska Štiavnica is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
