New tea house in the park of Bran

The Bran castle in Romania, mediatised as the Dracula castle, is one of the most visited places. Although medieval, it has been redesigned by the architect of the Royal house, the Czech Karel Liman, especially the interiors. Queen Mary put her creativity in this. It is the teahouse of Queen Mary which has been recently restored in the park.

The castle of bran is situated high on stones, and it has an interior courtyard featuring a stone fountain (pozzo) from Venice, but it also has a park around, welcoming tourists. The 2017 Annual exhibition of architects featured the restoration of the tea house of Queen Mary, a secondary building, into what it was. Architect was Remus Harjan, with the restoration part done by Stefan Bâlici, accompanied by a number of collaborators. The house faces the lake in the garden in which one side of the castle reflects. On the other side there is the steep stone.
Several years ago (2015) the book on the royal residences in Romania designed by Karel Liman was published by igloo media. A view can be seen here. The main author (Ruxanda Beldiman) most regretably passed away this year, after notable contributions to the architecture of the royal family (doctorate on the Peles castle in Sinaia).
