Queen Marie of Romania & Princess Ileana at Bran castle - Diana Mandache collection




After long discussions, procrastinations by the Romanian state and disputes between authorities and the descendants of Princess Ileana, the Bran Castle has at last been given back to its rightful owners on 31 January 2009. It has been decided to continue having the castle functioning as a museum, under private ownership, with the state (Ministry of Culture) providing the specialist personnel to run it. That is a solution much favored by the Romanian public, who see the castle as an important national heritage building, while at the same the property rights of Ileana’s descendants are fully protected.
