The project involves the restoration, rehabilitation, conservation of the existing buildings and development of a new exhibition area in the Caraiman Monument site.
This Monument site is close to Caraiman peak, where the Heroes' Cross (“Crucea Caraiman”), a memorial of First World War, lies.
“Crucea Caraiman” is the tallest summit cross in the world (as recognized in 2014 by Guinness World Records) situated at an altitude of 2,291 m in the Bucegi Mountains of the Southern Carpathians. The monument was built between 1926 and 1928 in the memory of the heroes of World War I, at the initiative of Marie of Edinburgh and King Ferdinand of Romania. The cross itself has a height of 28 metres (92 ft) and two arms of 7 metres (23 ft) each.
The complex and challenging work for the rehabilitation and restoration of the monument is performed considering difficulties on weather, environmental and logistic conditions and involves the most specialized technicians already employed on similar Projects’ extreme locations.
