  • 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.

  • This place is absolutely magnificent. There are few places I've been too across the world that have compared to the intricacy of Peles castle. There is so much rich history and so many expensive works. The walls are just littered with beautiful paintings. There must be dozens of statues of famous Romanian people. Interesting fact is the king who ruled at the time ,I can't remember who, paid for the castle himself with his own money. Pretty interesting.
  • Really great place to visit. I took a train from Bucharest which took around 1.5h. Just stay alerted as there is no train announcement so either ask locals to let you know when it arrives at Sinaia or keeping checking the station signs! A great walk from the station to the castle through a forested valley. Some stalls towards the end of trial where you can get some food and drinks.
  • Great place to visit. The tours of the museum benefit from a guide that offers valuable information and so.e Easter eggs for the rooms you visit. The guides offer information in both Romanian and English language. Definitely take the complete your (ground floor and upstairs). During weekend and other holidays however, the place is pretty crowded. This means that you have less time to admire the museum and it is also an inconvenience when it comes to hearing the guide's presentation.
  • Palace was absolutely gorgeous, never seen anything like that. Though, the employees are not very friendly, throughout the tour you are closely monitored not to touch anything or take pictures. You can't get into all of the rooms, though you can look at them from the doorway. There is one toilet outside of the castle, which might be closed, so be sure to go before you head to the castle. I was there during the winter and the view from the castle was amazing - hills, trees and alleys covered in snow, like in a fairy tale. It was hard to get there from the train station though, pedestrian ways are not shoveled from snow, so it is slippery if you don't have good winter hiking boots. And the signs are a bit confusing. It was an adventure though.
  • Italians were masons, Romanians were building terraces, the Gypsies were coolies. Albanians and Greeks worked in stone, Germans and Hungarians were carpenters. Turks were burning brick. Engineers were Polish and the stone carvers were Czech. The Frenchmen were drawing, the Englishmen were measuring, and so was then when you could see hundreds of national costumes and fourteen languages in which they spoke, sang, cursed and quarreled in all dialects and tones, a joyful mix of men, horses, cart oxen and domestic buffaloes. Very nice place.
