Photography exhibition dedicated to King Mihai

A photography exhibition dedicated to King Mihai I opens at the Peles National Museum in Sinaia on October 21. King Mihai I will turn 90 on October 25 and the exhibition “King Mihai I – 90” is meant to mark this event. The photographs on display come from the museum archive and illustrate various stages in the king’s life and two reigns, from his childhood to the moment of his departure from Romania. The former monarch is depicted both on official occasions, state visits, banquets, visits on the front, meetings with important figures, as well as in less formal contexts, alongside his family and his favourite dogs or engaging in various pastimes. Visitors will be able to see snapshots of the king while driving, playing the piano, taking photographs, working in his car-mechanic’s workshop or taking a hike through the Sinaia woods. Alongside the photographs, the exhibition also presents, in premiere, to the wider public the document by which the City of Bucharest acknowledges the August 23, 1944, “Proclamation to the Nation”.
