This amazing Neo-Renaissance castle is a hidden gem that is tucked away in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains. While in Bucharest, my friends and I booked a day tour to Bran Castle. At the conclusion of that tour, our guide told us that he "had a little surprise for us" if we did not mind extending the tour a bit. We... More

This is one of my favourite castle in Romania. The decorations are really nice. The price for the entrance is not expensive. It is a good visit for children too.

It is a must see castle, a real gem of Carpathians. Even though it is always compared to famous Dracula castle Bran, it is so much more. The castle grounds are very picturesque, and remind of Renaissance manicured lawns, with sculptures and other monuments. There is a fee for the visit, and they allow only groups in, so you have...

I get lost in the details of a museum or a palace, and many such attractions do not have much to offer from outside, mainly because they are surrounded by all kinds of buildings. So, many times I just pass them by. However, Peles Castle is situated in the middle of the nature, in the forest of the mountains, and... More

You can't go to Romania and not visit this castle.you come in and you feel like royals.your mouth will be wide open until the end of the visit.art, architecture and wealth are obvious and you will lose counting if you try to count the ''rooms''.a guide is very useful to learn more about the history and the secrets of the...

This is just a wonderful castle and the surroundings are worth seeing as well. We stayed in La Tuniri Hotel nearby and enjoyed ourselves so much.

The exterior of the castle is beautiful and you can get lots of great photos on the ascent to get there. Just as a warning, the parking (even if being dropped off by coach) is a little distance away from the castle and it's uphill. Its not steep and probably about 200m but hopefully good to know! You can see... More

I visited it several tames in the past; one of the beauties of Europe concerning German Renaissance. Worth for a visit in the winter as well in the summer. The garden is nicer in the summer, gives an outstanding view on the Carpathian mountains.

We visited Peles Castle in December and the scenery was covered in snow to add to the beauty of the location. the castle itself is interesting a worth a visit. Enjoyed drinking hot wine at the cafe close by.

We visited in December; make sure you have your hiking boots, but it is worth the walk. Not an old castle, but a royal retreat... well appointed interior with great woodwork... but the exterior was just wonderful.
