Castle Csjethe to be Restored

Čachtice or Csjethe castle was built between 1263 & 1276. It was later the home of Hungarian Countess Erzsebet Bathory til her death in 1614. She was imprisoned in a few rooms there in 1610.
The castle was burned in 1708 and the ruins are currently located in Slovakia although it has been in other countries over the centuries. Obviously Slovakia is looking at raking in tourist €s & is restoring other castles as well.
