Photographer's Note

The Cathedral of Curtea de Argeş (early 16th century) is a church in Curtea de Argeş, Romania, located in the grounds of a monastery. It is dedicated to Saint Nicholas.It resembles a very large and elaborate mausoleum, built in Byzantine style, with Moorish arabesques.

Our kings and early rulers are buried here. The last one is Michael the First (Mihai I 25 October 1921 – 5 December 2017)the last King of Romania, reigning from 20 July 1927 to 8 June 1930 and again from 6 September 1940 until his abdication on 30 December 1947. He was the most honest and great king of all, a king that sincerely loved his people and his country. He suffered, like us, from the Communist regime of the Soviets. His death was a huge tragic event for all of us, a big part of our history died with him.....
