Prague, July 26 (CTK) – The Prague Castle Administration plans to completely reconstruct the tomb of the Czech kings and make other repairs and investments costing 228 million crowns in total next year, according to information from its spokesman David Sebek.

The reconstruction of the tomb in which Charles IV and his wives, Wenceslaus IV and Rudolf were buried, among others, will cost five million crowns.
