I made just a quick tour through the castle and it was well worth it, and good value at only 20 lei (just over 3 pounds) for the basic tour. Internal decoration and range of rooms and decor amazing. Audio tour also very good, handy little I pod mini system, only 10 lei.

I was amazed to see the architecture and wood work in the palace. I would say it has some of the best art work you could ever see. Entry tickets are with guided tours in Romanian and English language. It takes about an hour for the tour. You can't miss seeing Peles Castle if you are in Romania.

We visited here as part of an organised trip. The building itself is superb and the interior opulent to the extreme. The tour group we were in was however too large and it was impossible to pick up on everything the guide was saying. Also, as this was just one stop on quite a tight itiniery, we were dissapointed to... More

As its en-route to Bran we stopped here, and what a surprise! The castle is beautiful and although it's barely 150 yrs old, it has a wonderful history. We paid 20 Lei, about £5 each and a guided tour in English was included. The tour was about 40 mins and was such an enjoyable experience. The place is bonkers! So... More

The Castel itself is definitely worth the trip to Sinaia, it's German design and the intricate details are amazing. You have to go in large groups (our group was 80+)with a guide, and the guide gave a good history lesson with the tour. However it was so hard to find the Castel if you walk up the mountain by yourself... More

Came here with our "Dracula Tour" and what a place. The grounds are magnificent and the rooms and relics inside are priceless. The basic tour was very good without seeing the upper floors. Our guide was informative and friendly. Plenty of photo ops in the gardens. If you're in Brasov see this palace.
