Greatness in Stone: ‘Architecture and Royalty’

1200px-Castelul_Peles,_Sinaia_-_Vedere_panoramica

One of the enduring ways by which the Romanian Monarchs have expressed their majesty and attachment to their realm was by erecting impressive edifices that have forever impacted Romania’s built environment. Iconic and majestic, these beautiful constructions remain, to this day, a testament of greatness and good taste.  The opening of the exhibition ‘Architecture and Royalty’, followed by the projection of the documentary ‘Royal Residences in Romania’ (narrated by academician Răzvan Theodorescu) and a conversation with professors Augustin Ioan and Marius Marcu-Lapadat offer a thorough exploration of the architectural masterpieces created under the aegis of the Romanian Royal Family.

The exhibition ‘Architecture and Royalty’ is set up with the support of the Bucharest General City Hall in partnership with Creart  – The Center for Creation, Art and Tradition of Bucharest Municipality, and was presented to the public for the first time at the Pelişor Castle in the presence of H.R.H. Princess Elena of Romania.
