Located at the end of a beautiful forest path, and set atop a hill amid the mountains,
this castle was founded by King Carol I, the man who was in charge when Romania gained
its independence in 1877. He decided to approve a plan for this castle that involved
creating a massive chalet-type structure that had one-hundred and sixty rooms inside,
everything from bedrooms to theaters, concert halls, weapons rooms, libraries, offices,
card rooms, shisha lounges, apartments, bathrooms, rooms to hang out in after you take a
bath, painting rooms, tea rooms, children’s play rooms, meeting rooms, breakfast rooms
and formal dining rooms. And that’s the basic part. The unique part is that every single
one of those rooms, as well as the hallways and foyers, were decorated in a completely
different style or theme, drawing from influences such as Turkish, Venetian, Florentine,
French, and Moorish, among others.

Situato alla fine di una bella strada forestale, posizionato su una collina in mezzo alle
montagne, questo castello fu fondato dal re Carol I, l’uomo in carica quando la Romania ha
guadagnato la sua indipendenza nel 1877. Egli ha deciso di approvare un piano di questo
castello che ha coinvolto la creazione di una massiccia struttura tipo chalet con
cento sessanta camere all’interno, tutto, dalle camere da letto ai teatri, sale da concerto,
sale delle armi, biblioteche, uffici, sale da gioco, salotti shisha, appartamenti, bagni,
camere di appoggio dopo un bagno, camere di pittura, sale da tè, sale giochi per bambini,
sale riunioni, sale per la colazione e sale da pranzo formale. E questa è la parte
fondamentale. La parte unica è che ogni singola camera, così come i corridoi e foyer,
furono decorati in modo del tutto diverso in tema di stile, attingendo alle influenze
turche, veneziane, fiorentine, francesi e arabe.
