Teleki Estate[edit | edit source]
Teleki Estate is located in Transylvania and it encompasses 16 acres of land. The estate hosts an 18th century baroque castle and an English park with old trees and meadows, near the river Mureș. The castle is one of the best preserved in Transylvania and has many of its original pieces in place like Murano chandeliers, wood doors, fireplaces, murals and stucco works. A part of the castle has been refurbished with antique furniture in order to recreate the old atmosphere, which visitors can see throughout the year.
