The morning we spent at Peles Castle was misting rain, and it made the outdoor setting that much more beautiful, with low clouds hanging in the surrounding mountaintops. The inside of the castle was incredible, with rooms decorated in styles of different regions of the world (a Moorish room, a French hall, an Italian room, etc.) so the king could... More

This is an interesting place to visit and provides a little contrast from other castles one might visit in Europe. It is relatively modern. The building started in the late 1800's and was finished at the outbreak of WWI. It has heat and air, electricity and even builtin vacuum systems. Still it is mind poppingly opulent. The amount of hand... More

Impressive palace in Sinaia, on the awesome Carpathian mountains of Romania. French style palace, luxurious, elegantly decorated, works of art in every room. The building itself is coming out of a fairy tail and the surrounding gardens and the mountains around it, compose a unique scenery. The local tour guides well informed, kind and helpfull It is worth visiting by... More

Loved Peles Castle. Only drawbacks were the long lines to enter and the covering for shoes. I wore sandals so I felt my feet were dirty afterwards.Notwithstanding this, the castle is worth seeing.

A group of 8 went to see Peles castle with a tour guide. For the hours I spent walking around, it was like I was dreaming even though I was awake. The beauty of the buildings, the decor and the stunning collection of weapons was a definite bonus to m visit. The staff were run off their feet, but were... More

It is a place you have to visit when you travel to Sinaia. You cannot describe in words how many interesting historical facts you will find out from the guide and how many beautiful things you will see inside! It is a must if you stay in Sinaia! I have visited the Castle for 7 times!!!

I've seen this castle twice, once when it was snowing and once on a warm and sunny day. When the weather is nice it's quite pleasant to walk up the long tree alley leading to the castle. The garden is wonderful with lots of sculptures and bushes and the interior is even better. The only bad thing is that you... More
