Halenárska Street is one of the city’s oldest streets and was known for its palaces. This cellar is thought to have been constructed around 1400, Žitňan added. Local officials are considering reconstructing the cellar as part of the new recreation zone. For more on Gothic architecture, go to "World Roundup: France."
