Exhibition on the Czech architect to the Romanian Royal Court opens at Peles Castle
On 15 February 2014, Ambassador Jiří Šitler opened – under the presence of HRH Prince Nicholas of Romania – an exhibition and presentation of a book on Karel Zdeněk Líman, official architect to the Romanian Royal Court.
Karel Líman was born in Mladá Boleslav and worked in Romania from 1884; he participated in construction or renovation of what are today the most visited historic buildings in the country, such as former summer residencies of the Royal Court Peles and Pelisor castles, Bran castle near the city of Brasov or Cotroceni in Bucharest, currently the Presidential palace. The exhibition and the book issued in Romanian and English by the Igloo publishing house were initiated by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and supported by ČEZ Romania Group.
The event at Peles Castle, which took place on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of this significant historical monument, was attended by numerous public and cultural representatives and the diplomatic corps.
