As a group of friends visiting Romania, we were happy to discover that beautiful place. Not only the castel is full of history and luxury, but the gardens and the general site are awsome. It is a place where it is possible to take a walk and admire the landscape... every traveler visiting Romania must go there!

The inside of the castle was closed for renovation when we visited but it was still worth the stop to admire the beautiful architecture of the building and its grounds.

Unfortunately the castle was closed so we were only able to do an outside tour. The setting is beautiful and the castle itself although not the oldest is impressive. There are cafes and a bar to grab food or drink. Worth a visit.

A truly beautiful castle which was more like a palace with such grand architecture, opulent rooms, artefacts and ornate gardens full of stone statues. I'm not one for doing tours however I would recommend taking a tour on around the interior and the exterior you can wander around yourself.

The castle is closed during November for cleaning and maintenance. So, unfortunately, we didn't get to go inside. The grounds and the outside of the castle are incredible. Amazing architecture surrounded by well kept gardens. Worth the visit - even if you can't get inside!

Walking along the small path through the forest, enjoying the fresh atmosphere. There're several souvenir shops along the path but the price is high a bit. The castle is mixing of old architecture with many Europe decoration detail, interiors. Don't take the camera when you get inside the castle because taking picture would dismiss the introduction from tour guide or... More

The view is simply stunning. We couldn't visit the castle cause it was closed but it's worth taking a walk around it. The hills and mountains, amazing sceneries around you ... what a day! The castle looks beautiful when it's snowing.
