Bran, 31 August

What a perfect time for us to arrive! On the main wall there appeared the completed figures of Queen Marie and Princess Ileana. Ileana bears the small replica of the chapel. The inscription on the scroll reads:


“When you will read
these words, my people,
I will have crossed
the threshold of the eternal silence,
which remains for us a great mystery.
Yet, from the great love
that I have felt for you
I yearn that my voice
reaches you once more,
even from beyond the
stillness of my grave."
                  . . .
Excerpt from the will of
Queen Marie of Romania

This little chapel will be a be a beautiful tribute to Queen Marie and Princess Ileana!
