A group of us were advised to visit this castle before leaving Romania and it was definitely worth it. An incredible place to see, buzzing with people. You can't gain access to the inside of the castle without paying for a tour, but it's definitely worth it!

One of the most beautiful places in Romania. A must for the international visitor. It is only 1,5h drive time from Bucharest (not in the weekends) offering a stunning piece of art and history of the place. In a mountain location filled with history you can relax and visit the castle and surrounding property. It's just worth it !

A lovely castle to visit and a great surprise. The entrance fee is normally for the first floor only and you need to pay a supplement of 30 lei to see the second floor. It is best to ask at the ticket office since they don´t seem to tell you that there are different tickets. Otherwise, have the money ready... More

Peles castle is amazing, the attention to detail and the wood work are the highlights. The armament collection is amazing. This is a great venue for photographers and the grounds are very nice. Enjoy!
