Photographer's Note

I was quitesurprised to see that there are tons of photos of the Peles Castle in Sinaia and none of the Pelisor (meaning Little Peles) Castle, just 50 meters away from it.

The Pelisor was built between 1899-1902 for the future King of Romania: Ferdinand I. It is smaller than the palace of King Carol I and much more alive (or at least this is how I see it). The future queen, Mary of Edinburgh, decorated it mainly in the Art Nouveau style, with some Celtic and even Byzantine influences (the Celtic cross was a symbol very dear to the Queen).

PS: Some "genius" decided to put a mailbox there and ruin the setting.
