Peles has and will always have visitors. Their visit should always be memorable and unforgettable. Organized tours in various foreign languages make the visit very efficient and pleasant. The guide was knowledgeable and patient, but she brought her little daughter along. Not a good sign, lack of professionalism. Maybe it was an accident. The guardians outside the castle were eating...

If you're on a sightseeing tour in Sinaia, it's a must to visit the Peles, Pelisor and Foisor Castles. They are all very beautiful, opulent and luxurious. Peles is the greatest of course, first of all because you get to see more rooms there; and secondly, you can just imagine what a great noble life they had in that period.... More

If you go to Romania, then you must go see Peles Castle in Sinaia. This castle is truly spectacular from the outside as well as the inside. The only thing is that there are so many tourists here trying to get an English tour and have to line up for at least an hour or so to get in. My... More

This Peles castle was King Carol 1's summer home. Ir is set high above the town and is huge, overlooking the beautiful countryside. A tour guide explained the many features and rooms which were furnished in styles of that time. There were many tourists that day and the tour must have taken about an hour, but was very educational.

We originally were going to go straight to Brasov on the train to see Castle Bran, but when we saw that the train goes through Sinaia we decided to go here first to see Peles Castle and then onto Brasov. We were so glad we did, this castle is very beautiful and well worth making to effort to see. We... More

I took the 75 minute tour and enjoyed the way the tour guide explained the castle's history and architecture. Luckily our group was not too big, so I could hear everything the tour guide said - I had noticed that some groups were very large. Worth a visit.

We visited the castle in November and we were amazed by the beauty of this place. It has preserved the atmosphere of its time. You feel as the special guest of the Romanian Royal family. The tour around the castle was really worth the time and the money!

Transylvania is beautiful, and the people are lovely. We really enjoyed our tour of the castle. It was well-preserved, authentically furnished, and our guide was excellent. The Tudor influence was obvious and grand. This castle is worth a visit.

This beautiful castle, built in the late 19th century, is as opulent as it gets. Just the feat of getting the materials to this remote location without breaking any mirrors is amazing. The magnificent workmanship is not to be missed.
