A Double Whammy from Alexandria

PelesCastleAlexandriaThese beautiful cards come from Gabriel in Alexandria (shown in the second card), Romania. He says he chose the first card (Peles Castle) to add to my collection of Romanian castles (at present, this collection stands at two!) and tells me the castle was built between 1873 and 1914 over 134,000 square feet of land with over 170 rooms! How amazing! He also says that Alexandria has a population of 41,000 and is situated in the south of the country. I really love informative cards like these as I love learning new things about foreign countries!
