The Congress Centre would be a5 star hotel with numerous restaurants, a concert hall, and conference and ball rooms. In the surrounding areas the investor has planned a classic and full dimensional golf course structure, as well as a professional horse riding club and a swimming pool complex with both open and covered pools. There were also plans for a tennis club, country club and a professional sports court. An exhibition centre was planned for inside the castle itself. A landscape park with numerous animal species has been incorporated into the complex area. The investor has planned to buy out all the buildings in the castle’s neighborhood, which formerly belonged to a castle complex and are currently occupied by Kopice residents. The ZARMEN company has proposed to turn them into new luxury apartments, equipped in all the required media. The building of the first block has already started, and the investor was planning the imminent building of the second one.
