Castelul Stirbey – Stirbey Castle


Resedinta de vara a Alinei Stirbey si a generalului Emanuel Florescu ramane cunoscuta astazi drept cea mai veche cladire civila din orasul Sinaia, ea a luat nastere la doleantele ficei domnitorului Barbu Bibescu-Stirbey.

Castelul Stirbey sta sub semnatura arhitectului olandez Josef Jacob Schieffleers, care reuseste prin maiestrie sa creze un adevarat castel intre ale carui ziduri se pastreaza si astazi secretele , tradarile si marile iubiri ale familiei marelui domnitor.

Stirbey Castle was Alina Stirbey’s and General I. E. Florescu’s summer residence and nowadays it is known as the oldest civil building in Sinaia. It was built under the special wish of prince Barbu Bibescu-Stirbey’s daughter.

Stirbey Castle was designed by the Dutch architect Josef Jacob Schieffleers, who succeeds in creating an exquisite Castle with walls keeping secrets, betrayals and loves of the great prince’s family even today.
