Government to pay over 330,000 EUR to Bran Castle owner

Romania not only lost the Bran Castle, but the new owner also won the trial against the Government, which means that he is to be funded EUR 333,333 by the state, the paper Romania Libera announces. The magistrates of the Supreme Court explained why they reached their verdict in favor of Ludovic of Habsburg, mentioning that the Government Resolution that reduced the rent for the Bran Castle from RON 81,928 to RON 18,265 granted no balance between the public interest and the right of the inheritor to a reasonable compensation. According to Lia Trandafir, one of the managers of the Bran Domain Administration Company, the Government must pay approximately EUR 333,333, at an estimative exchange rate of RON 4.2 per EUR. The only building the state will pay rent for three more years will be the Bran Medieval Customs Museum, which hosts the Bran Castle collections. The manager announced that the Bran Castle would be opened for visits after May 18 as well. Bran Castle would not be removed from the tourism circuit, but would be re-launched on June 1 and promoted both by the Ministry of Tourism and by its rightful owner, Dominic of Habsburg, representatives of the Ministry declared.
