Yesterday I showed you the exterior of this ravishing summer palace for the royalty of Romania. Today I bring you indoors again, for just a few glimpses of the many styles of mirrors in this 160-room castle. The reflections are for the community over at James' Weekend Reflections.
This first mirror is the tallest in the castle, reaching over five meters. The story is told that it came from Venice by boat, up the Danube all the way to Giurgiu, and was taken over land by oxcart the rest of the 200+ kms up into the mountains to Sinaia.

Both the Murano glass mirror and the Rococo style mirror are worth enlarging for a closer look at exquisite details.
The first large wood-framed mirror below is found in the hall of mirrors, while small mirrors graced the corners of the stunning tapestries in the oriental style guest room.
In case you missed my long shot of the castle two days ago, here is another one reflected in the window of our car with yours truly behind the camera.
Would you be interested to see more of the interior?
