Peles Castle is situated in Sinaia, a mountain resort on the Prahova Valley. The castle was built by the Honhenzollern dinasty. The castle together with its surrondings is a very beautiful pice of lanscape and a "must visit" when in Romania.

I have visited Castle Peles a couple of times. Out of all the Castles I have seen, I like this one the most. It's very beautiful and breath taking. I highly recommend you visiting Castle Peles if you ever go to Romania. You won't regret it!

Long drive but when we reach the castle, all worth it! This is one of the best castle I've ever seen.

Peles Castle is, quite simply, breathtaking. The exterior is beautiful by anyone's taste, with turrets, beautifully carved dark wood, and painted murals in the courtyard. The interior is likewise beautiful, and you should be sure to pay extra to see the ground and first floors (the second floor was closed when I visited). Some might say this is over-the-top, like...

Now THIS is a castle... A real castle with paintings, carpets, and furniture and stories of the Royals who lived there. Not like those other cold, lifeless fortresses (ahem, Bran/Corvin) You have to visit Peleş. It's amazing. So much eye candy. Every single inch of the interior is carved with design. We went with the English tour and it was... More

The interior and exterior of this castle is absolutely gorgeous. If you are in Transylvania this is a must stop – We did both Dracula’s Castle and Peles in the same day. It was a lot of driving but it was worth it. This castle is much prettier than Dracula’s castle as well. The tour was well worth it!

We could only visit when the castle's inside wasn't open. However, it was a fun experience and there was practically no one around. It's a fun place to take some pictures and a nice walk through the woods. The bathrooms were open, which was nice and unexpected. Recommend!

One of my favorite Castles. It's better then Bran (Dracula) Castle. Nature around is stunning. It looks like fairy tale.
