The Royal Train Station

The Royal Couple at Peles Castle, Sinaia

A most symbolic journey was undertaken by members of the Romanian Royal Family on the weekend of November 30-December 1 to celebrate
DECEMBER 1 - Romania National Day.

This day memorializes the unification of Transylvania into '"The Great Romania" in 1918 as well as regions of Basarabia and Bucovina.

With great pride is also evoking the great Romanian kings, Carol I and Ferdinand I, in remembrance of the train routes established 95 years ago by King Ferdinand and Queen Marie, from North Station, Bucharest  built in 1872 and Sinaia Train Station built in 1913 both erected under the reign of King Carol I.
