Visit 150 years of history. Then read about them.

Starting this week, the book called „Sinaia, Oraşul Elitelor” and its English version „Sinaia, Land of the Elites” awaits its readers also at the Sinaia City Museum – the Ştirbey Palace.

Here, at 28 Carol Boulevard, inside the summer residence of Alina Ştirbey and General Emanuel Florescu, you will find the oldest civil building in Sinaia today, a building signed by the Dutch architect Josef Jacob Schieffleers.

The Ştirbey Palace hosts now the Sinaia City Museum, a place where the whole city history is mirrored. The 13 theme halls inside, one of them allowing multimedia projections, travel through the history of the human settlement that used to be called the city with most architectural monuments per capita, The Pearl of the Carpathians, royal residence, the summer capital of Romania, the rest town on the short Orient Express list of stops, host of numerous national and European premieres. You may even choose to dwell inside the old property of ruler Barbu Bibescu-Stirbey’s daughter, by renting one of the six rooms Art-Deco arranged and specially prepared for those willing to experiment esthetical thrills.

In Sinaia, the English version of the book can be bought from Sinaia Casino, Sinaia City Museum – the Florescu-Ştirbey Palace, the shop within the Peles Palace premises, the souvenirs shop within Bastion complex, the bookstore in front of Mega Image supermarket on Carol I Blvd., the Art & Fresh shop and the Flower Power book store.
