Description

Romanian Kings: from antiquity to modern ages

Experience a day of wonderful adventures in the Carpathian Mountains, visit unique sites like the Peles Royal Castle in Sinaia and the famous Ialomicioara Cave.

Departure at 08:00 o'clock from Hotel Intercontinental - Bucharest to Sinaia - visit Peles Royal Castle, and then Ialomicioara Cave in the Bucegi Mountains . On the way to these destinations learn about Dromichaites king of the Getic - contemporary with Alexander the Great - the Macedonian; Burebista Dacian King - contemporary to Julius Caesar and Decebalus Dacian King - contemporary to Traian, Roman emperors and their main role and contribution to ancient history.

The change of the Dacians Polytheism from five Gods to a single faith: the belief in Zamolxes took place during the reign of Burebista. It aimed the strenghtening of power for the King at the top of society. There is a belief that Zamolxes lived in Ialomicioara Cave where kings and chieftanis came to pray and ask for advice. There are many versions of the legend but mainly the one God religion is similar to Christianity that brought all the people together in support of their leader. They went into battle with a smile on their faces, convinced that death on the battlefield would be the greatest honour of all.

The road to the Ialomicioara Cave crosses the Paduchiosu Mountain and then climbes the Plateau of Bucegi Mountains opening wonderful and deep sceneries, passes by the beautiful Valley of Ialomi a and the impressive Bolboci Reservoir Lake. The whole area that includes Ialomicioara Cave, Babele, Sfinxul is described as a zone with unuasully high levels of energy that make the human body function at its best tirelessly. Coming back from Ialomicioara, the road goes to Sinaia where the first King of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen Dinasty, Carol I built Peles Castle to live there during the hot summers of Bucharest in a similar place to that of the Black Forest Mountains where he was born. The Palace is beautifully decorated in wood of different expensive timbers containing panels, bas-reliefs, statues, furniture etc. which made the marketers promote it as: "It's worth to fly from New York to Bucharest only to see the Peles Castle."

Together with Ferdinand I, Carol II and Mihai, the Kings of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen Dinasty lived and led Romania from 1866 to 1947, a period of history that includes the Independence War and the two World Wars that brought dramatic, fundamental changes to the whole world and certainly Romania. Without their contribution our life today would have been profoundly different.
