"Peles Castel"

Sooooo... my last post sparked a flame. The first couple photos in the second video featured none other than Peles Castle.

If you've ever heard of Romania, it was most likely in relation in castles of some sort. And it's no wonder why.

Say hello to just one of the homes belonging to the late King Carol I of Romania. He was a distinguished Romanian ruler and conquerer of Nation Independence. Upon visiting Sinaia, Peles' hometown, the great King fell in love with the scenery of the land. And there his home was built. It was originally destined as a hunting preserve and summer retreat for the monarch, and later served several busniess purposes aswell. As of late, Peles was donated to the Romanian government and now houses eager sight-seeing travelers.

Alright, alright, enough talk. On to the pictures:

Gorgeous, isn't it?!
