Pelisor Castle, Sinaia

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. To visit Pelisor Castle on your trip to Sinaia, use our Sinaia trip builder.

  • 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.
