Stella Maris Chapel
Queen Marie held the castle as her second favourite residence after the one in Balcic.
Stella Maris Chapel in Bran is a replica of the royal chapel in Balcic. The chapel was painted in 1927 by Arthur Verona.
As requested in Queen Marie's will, after her death, her heart was placed in a gold casket and buried in Balcic, later moved to a grotto by the Bran castle; is now safeguarded in Bucharest's National History Museum.
Queen Marie is buried in Curtea de Arges.
