Peles castle is beautiful-very ornate, detailed and well maintained. They did guided tours-you have to go with guides and we had to wait a while to get enough of an English speaking group together-they required a minimum number to start a tour and there were only three of us. Overall-cool place.

I went here a couple years ago. I took a train from Brasov which was fairly easy. It walkable from the Sinaia train station although u will walk up hill a bit. Its not terrible though and its worth it. The Castle is surrounded by woods and mountains and is pretty awesome. Pay a little extra and take the longer... More

A rather weird-but not in a bad sense- construction, mingling various architectural influences and carrying a huge impact on Romanian modern history. The main residence of the royals of Romania, a German dinasty who did more for Romania than many other Romanian leaders. A place of great interest, offering either peaceful strolls around the castle, or an interesting visit inside... More

The castle is set back in a stunning forest. The exterior is impressive, but inside is the same, stunning. Beatiful, opulent and luxurious. A tour guide explained the many features and rooms which were furnished in styles of that time. The tour around the castle was really worth the time and the money.

A must view. I think that maybe it would be nicer to have an audio guide on order to avoid the crowded guided tours.

If you want to discover Romania at its best, you should definitely visit the Peles Castle! The summer residence of King Carol I, the castle was built between 1873 and 1914 and is one of the most impressive castles in Europe. You can book a guided tour and you can enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding the castle throughout the year.

Outside it looks just awesome! Before that I had only seen it on pictures and really dare to say that my expectations are justified. Extremely beautiful and surrounded by green forest. I had never seen so much wood in other castle or palace. Exactly the wood imparts warmth and comfort. The interiors were amazing. There was Murano's glass in the... More
