I visited this castle yesterday in a tour organised by TravelMakers of Bucharest. It is small for a Royal residence but nevertheless crammed full of artwork, lovely furniture and a good collection of armaments. There are two tours available, a basic one which is the ground floor and an extended tour including the upper floor including all the bedrooms. I... More

The Castle is located on the Northern outskirts of Sinaia. It is quite hard to find amongst the small back streets winding up from the town centre.

The reason this castle is so appreciated is that it's relatively small, very well furnished and has impressive wood decorations. It's well preserved and the tour is excellent.

My husband and I were very excited to see this castle. He had been 2 times before but this was my first time. It was about a 10 minute walk from where we parked and souvenir/food vendors lined the road which were reasonably priced. The exterior of the castle was stunning! It really is a beautiful castle and the highlight... More

Not even think to go in weekends or holiday. Far too much people. Better go to visit Pelișor. Try golden or celtic room.

If you go to visit it, visit the little Peles, called Pelisor 1st and then go visit Peles. In this order you will be amazed by both castles. In Pelisor there is a room that you will not find in Peles, it is called the gold room that will let you without words. If you like castled like I do,... More

The most beutiful castle that i ever seen but it takes to much to buy tikets. The bad thing about this turistic objective is that you can't pay with card. They only accept cash.
