  • Very nice exterior, totally absent interiors. We had to follow a guide that spoke only Romanian and we did not understand what he was talking about, so our experience was distorted by our deficiency, but the interiors are totally empty and skinny, just a few shots here and there. Price absolutely above average, practically four times higher than it deserved compared with other things visited

  • We really enjoyed our brief visit to the castle, we heard that it's more worth it to sit outside and have a coffee taking in the views and visit the restaurant than actually paying to go inside the ca...  more »

  • Most delightful place Ive visited in romania. The courtyard was gorgeous with amazing contemporary sculptures and restored marble sculptures too. The castle itself is beautifully restored, even if most of it's former glory has been lost in ages. The top floor also has a stunning art gallery.
  • Too expensive for too little to offer. The comunist party stole everything, furniture / painting / crowns on the doors. They still have the 4 fire places but are no longer functional. The paintings on the walls are covered by a new coat of paint. The view is nice though.
  • Interesting venue, with beautiful decorations inside (Venetian style). Superb vista over the town of Bucegi. Modern sculptures (mainly) on the grounds.
  • Have not visited the inside of it. Been to the bar which is really fancy and just outside in garden (for which also you have to pay for) It's a short taxi drive away from Peles castle (15min - 30 lei) The scenery from the garden is indeed beautiful
  • Amazing view! The Castle is very nice and interesting. There is a restaurant inside, suggested! Definitely a place to visit
