As a non-profit organization, all our members of Kulturno Društvo Von Leitenburg are sharing the same values and objectives. We'd love to gather around each project's strengths and skills from different companies and give them credit for rebuilding Lože Castle with us. Companies that want to collaborate on any project or want to help with the ordinary maintenance of the castle and the surrounding grounds by providing teams to carry out the work or material, goods, or equipment will be very welcome!
