Commenced two years ago, the works are currently intensified because all necessary permits have been obtained from the Institute for Preservation of Cultural Monuments.
Belgrade-based company "Univerzal- holding", as the majority owner of Kaštel castle in Ečka, has ambitious plans for restauration of this facility. Construction of tennis courts in big park, swimming pools and much more related contents is in the pipeline.
- We are currently waiting for permits for elaboration of projects for sports contents, because our intention is to have basketball and football field built, as well as livery stable and shelter for dogs.
