Sinaia: Peles Royal Domain, guard pavilion (6)

By gss  
The terraces. I'm not sure but i guess that the canons are some captured from the Ottoman Army in the Romanian Independence War (known better as Russian-Ottoman War between 1877-78, finished with Adrianopolis - Edirne - treaty)
The terraces belong today to a restaurant bar, and from thee you have a [link=Sinaia: Peles Royal Domain, guard pavilion (5)]nice view of the Peleş Castle ( as in one of my previous image)[/link]
A special thank to Joline for her very kind award

Both the Castle and the Guard house are fascinating buildings, for their history, architecture and their artistic appeal.
This cannon sits well with the guard houses former purpose and provides an interesting feature for the people using
the facicities there today.
Super image Silviu.
