Pelisor Castle, Sinaia

4.5
#3 of 9 in Things to do in Sinaia
At Pelisor Castle, visit the arched "golden bedroom," where Queen Marie spent her final hours entirely covered in thistle leaves--symbols of Scotland, her native land. King Carol I ordered the castle to be built for his heir, future King Ferdinand, and his wife Marie, at the end of the 19th century. The interior, decorated with early 20th-century Viennese furniture and Tiffany glassware, reflects the personal style of the queen. In the hall of honor, pay attention to the glass ceiling and oak paneling. The paintings and drawings on the walls depict the queen with her children. In the queen's study, you'll find a typical Romanian fireplace and the queen's emblem on the chairs and desk. To visit Pelisor Castle on your trip to Sinaia, use our Sinaia trip builder.

    To warm up, "bulblet" for those whom delight Royal pribabahi and how all sorts of "blue-blooded" VIP-persons arranged myself life and landscape design)). For those in the theme will delight anyone no, I do not advise. The crowd at the entrance, the crowd inside, too. Gaumont guides, you can hear their fluttering something in different languages. Tedious and monotonous. That Peleshe that in Czech or German castles-the same rigmarole (((

    A short walk from the castle of Peles, find this beautiful castle called with the diminutive because smaller. It was the summer residence of the King Carol I's successor, King Ferdinand, who was Peres too far. Built in art nouveau style has 70 rooms, decorated with Viennese furniture, vases, Tiffany, Lalique.

    The location is beautiful, but the only interior has a conditioned tour of 20 minutes, the rest of the Castle not shown commented this to avoid disappointments, is quite interesting since the owner lived with all the comforts and currencies of the time.

  • Lovely place in beautiful grounds. Gets very busy so get there early! Closed Mondays. Nice walk up the road...is quite steep.
  • Lovely spot right next to Castelul Peleş. Worth taking the additional time to check it out. Tours are available to take you through this palace. Feels like a very large mansion and gives you some history of the past residents.
  • Castle Pelisor was supposed to serve as the summer residence of King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of Romania. Extremely valuable exhibits Queen Mary
  • If I have to compare it to Peleș Castle it's not big deal but still the castle looks good and it's located 100m from Peleș Castle.
  • A place full of history, which should not be missed if you arrive in Sinaia.
