  • We arrived in a snow day in March. The snow shut down the nearest parking and we had to walk approximately 600 meters rising in the snow (not suitable for young children) to get to the Castle. On the other hand there was no queue. English guided tour in a small group was great and fun. Duration: 1 hour and a half. The Castle are very beautiful and magnificent teacher. Was worth every minute, and Lee

  • A magical place! Many times there was already, but never cease to get bored and come here again and again! The landscape around the castle is simply breathtaking! Come, walk, breathe the fresh air, enjoy the views, be sure to visit the Peles, because inside it is not less beautiful than outside! I love walks in the surrounding area. Intesno run on the souvenir will. There, behind the Castle, there is a very quiet streets with old houses. In winter, when plenty of snow, they are similar to gingerbread houses from fairy tales.

  • Looked spectacular from the outside with amazing views all around. A stream of water runs along the path for fantastic pictures and there are even vendors with souvenirs and food items like cooked corn on the cob and candy apples. We were not able to go inside because it was closed therefore I couldn't give it a 5 star, but totally worth the 5-10 minute walk from parking to see the outside. Just know as soon as you turn on the street to go up to the castle there is a guard there and you need to stop. We missed him and had to go back down the hill before we could park. Also, if on your return to your car you decide to go down the path with the vendors, know you will either have to turn around and retrace your steps or have to go all the way around. We made that mistake but chose to find our way back the long way. Bonus was we went into the beautiful monastery as well as found an American war memorial that was a very special find.
  • A very impressive place to go with a family. The castle is just over 100 years old and it is very majestic. It has 170 rooms and 30 bathrooms. The grounds are quite beautiful as well as the mountains in the foreground. Note, you don't have to pay anything to walk around the outside which might be the most ideal choice for young kids.
  • The castle and the town is lovely... It makes for great photographs and lovely architecture ( both inside and outside). The rate is 30 Lei for each floor.. Strongly advice taking both floors.. The first floor is more beautiful than the ground floor and less crowded.. There is a separate charge for cameras - 35 Lei which is too high in my opinion.. But overall a lovely experience.. It's the perfect day trip...
  • Way more scenic than the Bran castle and waaaay less tourist crowded. We were surprised by how stark and beautiful the castle was, especially since there’s very little indication of it on the journey from Bucharest. However once there we very much enjoyed the scenery and setting of the castle - however we did not enter the buildings (we don’t care that much)
  • The most beautiful Castle we visited in Romania hands down. Both the exterior and interior are amazing. However a few comments for management: - you should have tourist friendly explanations about the different options with pictures for entrance i.e. First floor, second floor etc. Had I known I would have paid for the second floor had I understood my options. - you should have 2 cashiers to speed up admittance not just 1. - you should accept credit card. - Although it says it opens at 9 don't be fooled you can't go in until 11. - very disorganized lines for ticket purchase and entering. Install barriers as everyone is jumping the queue.
