Take your time to visit this castle & its gardens. Make sure you have the camera ready, it is a wonder in each season. Take the long tour inside and admire lots of beautiful rooms, filled with history.

“a very nice castle”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Is the most beautiful castle from Romania. It has a great position, with big gardens and you can visit it anytime. You buy a ticket and you go with a guide who tells you the story and you also can ask questions if you are interested. If you want to take pictures of the inside you have to pay a fee, but you also can find in the souvenire shop at the entrance and you can buy cd's and books. Near the big castle it is a smaller one, Pelisor castle and it is also very nice and interesting to be visited.

“It really is jaw dropping.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

I was not expecting the detail and beauty that was inside this castle. It is a real gem and a definite must see. Pay the extra to take your camera in as its stunning.

“As marvellously Ruritanian a castle as can be contrived”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Peles Castle was built for the King of Romania in the late nineteenth century; it's pretty much contemporary with the writing of _The Prisoner of Zenda_, and it could be the Ruritanian castle there. Fantastically over-wrought interiors, ridiculous marble fireplaces, thick dark carved oak panels, all the stag's heads you could desire and some more stag's heads besides; spires, gardens, collections of arms and armour, and the first castle to be fully electrified.

This is the main reason to go to Sinaia; the other reason is the Pelisor castle. You should see both, and you should see this one first.
