Sisi und Franz Jozef

Right after the communists gained power in Romania, the statue of Empress Elisabeth of Austria from Cluj was taken down from the Citadel and hidden to prevent it from being molten (they did so with King Carol I’s statue from Bucharest). After more than a half of century later, the bust was discovered by mistake in the secret dungeons from the Banffy Palace’s basement.
