As some of you may know, as Orthodox Christians we Bulgarians celebrate Easter a week after most of the world. Me and my folks had a great plan to visit a small picturesque village in neighboring Greece called Keramoti. They’ve been there before and I’ve heard amazing things about it. So, naturally, I wanted to share my great experience here. Sadly, this isn’t possible, as I came down with the flu and all plans for a sunny holiday by the sea fell through. I spent the last 5 days in bed, hardly moving, with no desire even to open my laptop. Now that I feel better, I decided that I could share some pics from the time we spent in Romania a month ago. We were wondering between a Milan city break and this. However, my fascination with history, castles and Count Dracula won. Bellow you can see some photos of Peles castle, a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia. It is a beautiful and impressive building due to its architecture and style, and also thanks to the very well preserved interiors. The king wanted to bring together different styles and there can be seen German, Italian, French and Oriental influence in his Summer Residence.
These are some pics from our trip to Bran Castle. It’s a formidable 800 year old fortress built strategically on a hill in Bran, the home of the notorious Vlad Tepes, the Impaler.
