Photographer's Note

Peles Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, built between 1873 and 1914. Its inauguration was held in 1883. Today is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe. It was the final resting place for several Romanian monarchs including King Carol I, who died here in 1914.
The castle was built in wood, stone, bricks and marble and comprises more than 160 rooms. The representative style used is German Renaissance, but one can easily discover elements belonging to the Italian Renaissance, Gothic, German Baroque and French Rococo style.
