........just giving some recommendation upon a couple of publications from my collection at home for those that are interested about the Art & Architecture of Potsdam & Prussia symbolising the Hohenzollern dynasty through it's building projects.

Both books edited by Peter Feierabend & photography collected by Gert Streidt & Klaus Frahm.

Firstly Potsdam goes into the evolution of Potsdam from it's humble beginnings to the centre for the Palaces & Gardens of the Hohenzollerns. Full of large colourful pictures accompanied with writing giving insight into the the development of the building projects & also the Architecture styles that influenced the planning of these gems.

Again with Prussia-Art & Architecture the team that produced Potsdam give a descriptive & insightful view of the developments in the area of the arts & architectual styles expressed, however unlike Potsdam it goes more into the various levels of Art portrayed in a monumental sense impacting upon the population with a Nationalistic light.

Both very Informative reads and quite large books, very well presented in a hard cover fashion, highly recommendable for those with an interest in the Arts & more specifically Architecture.:)

......yes Peles is a rather beautiful building of the Romanian Hohenzollerns something this German noble family has achieved is as always building beautiful landmarks, though the books recommended deal exclusively with the Brandenburg Hohenzollerns.:)

It's a Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen in Romania. It was, in fact. I am sorry for not having also some of the photos of the Elisabeth Palace in Bucharest... It's only interior photos and not of a good quality.

This is their castle in Germany:

There's a great three-part English-language documentary about Burg Hohenzollern (the main one -- the one in Hechingen, not Sigmaringen) on YouTube.

I don't know how to post YouTube videos here, but all three parts appear together at the following Web page:

Well worth a look. It was filmed in the early 1990s.
