The Sinaia Casino was also built at the initiative of Carol I.The construction works started in 1912 and have been supervised by Petre Antonescu, the author of the plans. A year later G.Enescu the famous composer of the time was also present at the huge fireworks of the grand opening.
The main shareholder in the casino was Baron of Marcay, who by the way was also a shareholder in Monte Carlo Casino. What is more to it the two casinos are very much alike. Players to the casino arrived on a special train from all parts of the country and often from all part of Europe.
The casino was the main attraction in the town, celebrations, parties were organized here, around 800 people entered the casino daily. It seemed that nobody and nothing could ever put it to an end. However, during WW II, though for a short time in 1947 it closed its gates. In 1995 it became a community centre with its own library and art groups. Later having recognized the value of the building, after all, it became the scene of exquiste theatre performances, folklore events and concerts.
It was renovated in 1975 and since then it opened its gates eclusively to international meetings and banquets honouring presidents. Today it functions as a modern well-equipped conference centre.
