Built for the heirs to the throne, Pelisor ( little Peles) is, unlike its bigger brother Peles, first and mostly a home. Confortable and filled with life, it feels welcoming and restrained. A special mention to the guilded study and its chimney, the collection of Nautilus shells in the study and the china collection on display.

Pelisor Castle is right next to the Peles castle. You can't miss it. Though we did not go inside, we found it simple yet beautiful from the outside. It costs 20 Lei for adults.

Warm welcome. A very 'lived in' feel throughout the house. Instead of doors roped off there was a perspex screen - much better. Well -furnished. A written guide was helpfully given to us. Room attendants do not speak English. Worth a quick visit if at Peles castle.

This is another point of interests of those that go to see Peles castle. The most stunning place to see is the room where the heart of queen Mary rests in peace. The rooms shines up because of its gold walls. The effect on the visitor is amazing

Situated on a hill in close vicinity of Peles Castle it's a perfect addition to any trip. It would be a shame to miss it, when they are so close together. They may look similar from the outside, but the big Peles Castle is decorated in German Gothic style, while little Pelisor is in bright Art Nouveau style with original... More

The castle is a small one, with 99 very nicely decorated rooms. Many of these rooms are impressive by their elegance and refinement, as the decorations were chosen by Queen Mary herself. Today, Pelisor Castle houses a museum where tourists can admire, besides its rooms some of Queen Mary’s art pieces, such as a painted parchment, made in 1906, and... More

This little Castle is a little less impressive than Peles, but it is still nice to visit, as there are fewer tourists and even without a guide (since you have already seen Peles, you can see the similarities in decoration and you already had a guide so you are kind of tired and want to discover by yourself). There is... More

It's a little bland and unimaginative next to Peles. When inside it just feels like a large 1980's house, not particularly impressive, just three stories. Rooms look dated, rather than frozen in time with the one exception of the Queen's gold room. The outside, however, is interesting. Save your money and don't bother going inside!
