Queen Maria of Romania was one of the most outstanding historical personalities of the country. Born in 1875 in Great Britain, Maria became queen consort of Romania by marrying King Ferdinand I. With a charismatic presence and active involvement in political and social affairs, Queen Maria had a significant impact on the evolution of Romanian history. One of its best-known links with Romania’s historical heritage is associated with Bran Castle, located near Brașov. Queen Maria frequently visited Bran Castle and was attracted by its architectural beauty and the surrounding mountain landscape. She spent some summers there, carrying out artistic and cultural activities in the picturesque atmosphere of the castle. In her memory, Bran Castle became a symbol of Queen Maria’s elegance and sophistication, maintaining its status as an important tourist destination even today.

Thus, the connection between Queen Maria and Bran Castle remains one of the fascinating stories of Romanian history, illustrating the connections between historical figures and the cultural heritage of a nation.
