Emil Levitchi - Romania

 ~ Romania - Sinaia - The Peles Castle ~
Sent 28-12-2009
Thanks for Emil Levitchi!!
The 1st Post Card from Romania, I like this card so much, because it is rare to see a Castle in Malaysia. 
Located in Sinaia (44 km from Brasov), Peles Castle 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 building of the castle began in 1873 under the direct order of the Viennese architect Wilhem Doderer and was continued in 1876 by his assistant, Johann Schultz de Lemberg. During 1877-1879 because of the war they abandoned work. That's why the castle was inaugurated only on October 7, 1883. The location for the castle was chosen by the German prince Carol I de Hohenzollern, who was to become a king and it draws its name from the neighboring brooks which passes through the courtyard.

The only could see in Malaysia is the Kellies Castle located at Ipoh Perak which is damaged since war time. (info: )
