I have a penchant for castles, but Peles is hands down the most ornate and detailed I have ever visited, and I have been to Neushwenstein! Get the extra upstairs ticket too. Def worth every cent. Think we paid 60lei each.

A delightful castle in a most impressive setting. Plenty of excellent carpentry and wood carving to see inside. If you can, include the upstairs level in your tour. It is much quieter and is a treat to see. They run guided tours, but you do...More

Our tour guide encouraged us to arrive before 10am - wait for the toilets when you arrive, as hundreds of people descend upon this stunning castle after 11am. Tour guide was informative and we got time to take lots of photos and enjoy the palace...More

Wherever you are, inside or outside the Castle, the Views are astonishing. It's a bit expensive to visit both,ground and 1st Floors but it's worth every penny. The Story and things you see inside the Castle are not things you see every day. If you...More

We stayed in an Airbnb in Sinaia and used it as a base to go to Bran and Brasov. Peles is right in Sinaia. Have fun.
