What a cool castle. This is what you want to see in the Sinaia region. Peles is very impressive and beautiful, even just from the outside. The walk up to it is also beautiful, with a nice path (lined with street vendors, of course ;)) and it gives you an idea of the beauty of the castle. We drove here... More

It's an amazing castle... I've been there a few times and it's so beautiful... Nice piece of art with a great history behind it. If you are around please go and see it, you will not be disappointed.

So my girlfriend and I (both students) were staying in Bucharest and wanting to go to visit Peles without having to pay too much. Having done extensive research it seems like the only tour going there was priced at 70EUR and included both Peles and Bran castles and Brasov city. We couldn't afford it. So for the rest of you...

I was part of a group of around 20 people on a 45 minute 'standard' tour. The more expensive 'extended' tour includes the upstairs bedrooms. Pros: -English speaking guide. He had a cold, but I could still understand most of his information. -Castle contains armoury, intricate wood carvings, chandeliers and woven carpets. Areas I viewed included the welcome, dining, music,... More

The castle was quite magnificent, especially snow covered when we visited. It is relatively easy to get to and the tour is good value for money. The inside of this castle is even more amazing than the outside. A must visit for any trip to Romania

There are 2 tours to be taken in Peles and one in Pelisor. First tour in Peles takes you only... More

Thi is a great castle. It's 130 years old, so everything is in great condition. They still use the original heating system, made in 1903. There are a lot of secret passages inside, all the furnitures are the original one so you can really see how the Romanian king lived. There are two types of entrance ticket, but choose the... More

You can't visit Romania's mountains and miss the Peles Castle! It's a big part of Romania's history and it really makes you feel that you are in those times.
