Cotroceni Palace was a also linked with an Orthodox Monastery and the Prince Serban Cantacuzino really cared about it.

The residences of many important personalities were destroyed or sold during the communism and immediately after 1989:

The residence of Iuliu Maniu is almost a ruin because the state does not give it back to the Greek-Catholic Eparchy of Oradea heir of Iuliu Maniu:

Queen Maria's heart. According to her Will her heart was taken out of her body and stored in a silver box, wrapped in a double standard with on the one side the Romanian flag, the flag of Great Britain on the other. (Queen Maria was born Princess Marie of Edinburgh, Queen Victoria was her grandmother). In turn, this box was placed into another box, with gilded silver ornaments and precious stones. The box was placed in a special chapel.

In 1968 the Communists de-sacrated the Chapel and removed the box. Since then Queen Maria's heart was stored in a depôt in the National History Museum in Bucharest. In Fall, the Queen's heart will be transferred to Pelisor Castle, with some ceremony.

How many of the Romanian residences are still owned and used by the royal family?

The descendants of King Michael use Savarsin Castle and at events Peles and Pelisor. HIRH Archduke Dominic of Hasburg-Tuscany(and his sisters) own the Bran Castle. Different noble families have got back their castles but some of them sold the properties. The other residences belong to different ancient families.

It is a pity Pelisor Castle can't be visited so easily as Peles.

It would be interested to see if Savarsin Castle will be a residence only for some members of the King's Family or for all of them.

I suppose that we'll just have to wait and see what will happen after the death of King Michael.

Dining room in the former summer residence, Peleș Castle. Spectacular but not my style. It is a dark and gloomy place.
