Almost all students will at some time be expected to write an essay, or some other kind of argument, . a review or discussion section, in a longer piece of writing. In English, an essay is a piece of argumentative writing several paragraphs long written about one topic, usually based on your reading. The aim of the essay should be deduced strictly from the wording of the title or question (See Academic Writing: Understanding the Question ), and needs to be defined at the beginning. The purpose of an essay is for you to say something for yourself using the ideas of the subject, for you to present ideas you have learned in your own way. The emphasis should be on working with other people's ideas, rather than reproducing their words, but your own voice should show clearly. The ideas and people that you refer to need to made explicit by a system of referencing.
I have a special interest in visiting famous places and on my list historical places always get preferences. I have visited many historical places like castles, museums and many others. Such historical places and site attractions mesmerized me. The historical place that I would like to talk about is the Peles Castle, which is situated in Sinaia, on Prahova's Valley and 44 km from Brasov, Romania. It is basically one of the most important historical monuments from our country. It has a unique feature and both a historical and artistic significance. The construction of the castle began in 1873 and ended 10 years later.
The historical meaning of this place is connected to king Carol the first, king of Romania, who reigned from 1866 to 1914. Interestingly, the king visited first time Sinaia in the summer of 1866. He was deeply impressed about the beauty of those places so he decided the construction of the castle. Arguably, the location of the castle wasn't a coincidence as at that time it was close to the Romanian border with Austro-Hungary.
Its historical importance grew throughout time as it became the summer residence of the royal family. Here were also held important political meetings, like deciding Romania's neutrality from the First World War.
Clearly, the castle also housed many important people, like writers, musicians, but also kings and queens, such as Franz Joseph.
In this place took place different events, such as the birth of the future king Carol the second and of Michael the first, not to mention the wedding of Princess Ileana.
Personally, I have heard and seen this famous place and when I witnessed it for the first time, I became speechless. I was impressed about the beauty of the place, the way the castle was decorated, about its historical objects such as coins, money, the room in which the Royal family dined or signed treaties, about its jewellery, pottery, the architecture of the castle and last but not least its unique style.
