Transcarpathia may lose one of its tourist highlights. The Nevytsky castle is collapsing. The roof of the last surviving tower is in an emergency condition. Experts say that it is about to fall
Today the Nevytsky castle is a monument of the national importance, but it is in a communal ownership. There is no sources of financing for this facility. Activists once again say about the need to address the emergency situation and to prevent further destruction of the monument. Employees of the Department of Tourism and Resorts of the Transcarpathian Regional Administration initiated the establishment of a commission, a detailed study of the issue and making concrete proposals for the session of the Regional Council.
The head of the Tourism and Resorts Department of the Regional State Administration Denys Man:
"The first step is the formation of the commission, which will assess the state of the castle and submit recommendations and proposals for further action. We must think about conservation of the architecture monument of national importance. Now it is on the balance sheet of the village council, but it is a monument of national importance. Therefore, any measures that are taking place and will take place on the repair, restoration should be approved under the current legislation, the funds should be provided in the state budget, the project estimates should be developed first."
The historian-archaeologist and the head of the NGO "Nevytsky castle" Oleksandr Dzembas claims that the problem has been existing since long ago. In the early 1990s a commission already considered the issue. But, according to the historian, the problem is not actually in the roof of the castle, but in the lack of a system that would allow to save the monument. This situation applies to all castles in Transcarpathia.
On Monday, November 9, there will be a meeting of the Coordinating Board on Tourism, where they will discuss the concept of the development of the Nevytsky castle as a historical, cultural and architectural reserve. Then, they plan to hold a hearing with representatives of Kamyanytsya village council and scholars. The taken decision will be submitted to a session of the Regional Council.
