Historical building in Romanian thermal spa resort in danger of collapsing after roof caves in

A part of the roof of the Neptune Baths, a historical building in the mineral spring resort of Băile Herculane, collapsed, endangering even more the structure of the construction. With a part of the roof, a wall of the Neptune Baths also collapsed, according to TransylvaniaToday.ro.

A team of architects that has been working to kick off the preservation and refurbishment works on the building has long warned about the danger of collapse. In 2017, the building was declared a public danger in order to speed up intervention on it and after a technical evaluation found that some of its elements could fall onto a nearby street.
