A fairy-tale castle is not everything. What is hidden in the mysterious tunnels?

Castles are usually one of the most important points on the sightseeing list. Tourists want to see the historic buildings of royal families around the world. The most famous ones are popular, such as Predjamski Grad in Slovenia, Edinburgh Castle and Windsor Castle.

However, it is rarely heard about, which may be surprising when you see this work of architecture.

It is located in Romania and is surrounded by the Bucegi Mountains. . The castle served as the summer residence of the Romanian royal family until 1947. Over the years, the building was decorated with the most beautiful works.

The 160 rooms of Peles Castle contain works of European art such as paintings by great artists and crystal chandeliers from Murano.

The uniqueness of this place is created by the rooms. Each room is a different world. The rooms have been decorated in a different style or theme.

“I have never seen a castle like this before. Wood, marble, glass, interwoven, intertwined, fabulous, inventive, inventive. Between towers that scratch the sky like swords,” said Henri Blowitz, correspondent of “The Times Paris,” about the Peles Castle.

Not only does it make a unique impression from the outside, it looks like it was straight out of a fairy tale. In its center there is a mini-theater with 60 seats, a music hall, the Turkish Salon, the Grand Salon, the Council Chamber, the Hall and, of course, sleeping chambers.

The Royal Library also deserves recognition, with its collection of 30,000 books. This room has a secret – one-way – door leading to the royal apartment.

Peles Castle takes its name from the neighboring Peles Stream, which flows through the courtyard. It was the first European castle equipped with electricity, supplied by its own power plant. Running water, central heating, a telegraph, a telephone, a small elevator for the royal family and a central vacuum system are other amenities that the castle offered from the very beginning. The stained glass foyer roof opens mechanically.

The Neo-Renaissance architecture is decorated with spiky spiers reaching into the sky. Peles Castle embodies the essence of a Romanian fairy tale.

Although Bran Castle is considered Dracula’s castle, for which Romania is famous, Peles Castle can compete with it. It is certainly worth visiting both of these places and absorbing the mystery of Romania related to vampires and monarchy.

The castle is located at the foot of the Bucegi Mountains – a range in central Romania that is part of the Southern Carpathians.

There are also attractions that attract tourists. The Bucegi Mountains hide one of the most mysterious natural monuments in Romania – the Sphinx. However, it has little in common with the Egyptian Sphinx.

The shape of this rock formation resembles a human face and many believe that this shape is a direct result of erosion caused by wind over long periods of time.

Some, however, see something more than erosion in this formation. There is an opinion that the Romanian Sphinx is proof of the existence of a much more advanced civilization or that it was built by the Dacians as a tribute to Zalmoxis, an important deity in their history of Romania. Regardless of which theory is true, the Sphinx does have some peculiarities that distinguish it from other rock formations of this type.

Only when viewed from a certain angle, it resembles the Egyptian Sphinx. The rock was first photographed in 1900. Since then, it has continued to fascinate people. However, the name sphinx appeared only in 1935.

The Sphinx is formed from a large block of stone, 8 meters high and 12 meters wide.

Some voices say that between the Sphinx of Bucega and the Sphinx of Egypt there is a time tunnel, a three-dimensional or energy corridor, which may contain information on various topics that are still a secret to this day. Census theorists also believe that there may also be well-kept secrets about the continents of Atlantis and Lemuria, and even writings about Jesus.

One of the supporters of this theory was historian Daniel Ruzo. He claimed that the Sphinx was evidence of an alien civilization that left behind several structures, including the one on the Bucegi Plateau.

There is an opinion that the Sphinx had a sacred meaning and was born in Dacian times. The Bucegi Plateau was a meeting place for those who wanted to make offerings to the gods.

Although there are many theories, including those unrelated to science, regarding the Bucegi Mountains, the Carpathian Sphinx and time tunnels, regardless of their origin, tourists gather near the Sphinx formation in the Bucegi Mountains every year on November 28.

It is on this day, at sunset, that the sun’s rays create a unique optical phenomenon around the face of the Sphinx. Those who believe in the theory about the extraordinary energy of this place and the secrets associated with it claim that a kind of energy pyramid is created and it is supposed to have healing properties.

Regardless of the purpose of visiting, this place is popular among tourists who admire the beautiful landscape, light spectacle and unusual rock formations.
