World War II grenades in Trnava City Hall

There was a bit of a scare in Trnava this morning, 6 August, when workers that were renovating the roof of City Hall in Trnava found two live hand-grenades.

Police and bomb-disposal experts were called in after the 70-year old grenades were discovered, with 20 of the staff of the City Hall being evacuated until the situation was dealt with. It took the bomb-disposal experts an hour to deal with the situation, before town hall staff were allowed back to work.

The grenades from 1938 were just wrapped in old newspapers from the time, and so have probably been sitting there ever since World War II, said City Hall spokesman, Pavol Tomasovic.
