Pelisor Castle, Sinaia

4.5
Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
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.

  • The castle is very impressive but badly maintained. The gardens are dirty and not kept. There is only one toilet for hundreds of visitors a day, which were closed at least until 10:30 when we left
  • A beautiful and historical building. The castle looks stunning and has a big part in romanian history and culture.
  • That's why Please be aware that is not all time open. Check their website prior to visit. You can book a room right under corner, you can eat, souvenir shop. Be aware in case you travel with disabled people. Hard to push the chair on the road(cubic stone) and inside the castle no chance for them. Beware of photo fee!!! Traveled a lot, seen a lot of Europe museums. But never ever seen this kind of photo fee. You pay for entrance but... to take photos you need to pay another fee, bigger than the entrance fee. What? That's why i will give only 4 stars.
  • The castle is nice and worth visit. The staff does not explain and sits on their phone. Not recommended it you want information. Edit: After this review, the guide of the castle contacted me on private. He is mocking me for the English review, on a private SOCIAL MEDIA message! Inadmissible behavior of an employee.
  • Well preserved little castle were you can walk alone or take a guided tour. There is a fee if you want to take photos or video. The main room is the golden one, where is the heart of queen Maria.
