Pelisor Castle, Sinaia
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
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.

Sarebbe stupido paragonarlo al Castello maggiore lì accanto: è un'altra cosa. Interni accoglienti e ospitali, spesso luminosi pur nelle ridotte dimensioni, arredi e bronzetti art nouveau di altissima ... read more »It would be stupid to compare it to the higher Castle next door: it is something else. Interior welcoming and hospitable, often bright despite the small size, high quality furniture and art nouveau bronzes. A lesson about living with style but also a lot of warmth.

Castle of Queen Mary of Romania, next to the much more impressive Peles Castle. An interesting mix of decorative elements from several civilisations.

The ticket to Pelișor used to be included in the ticket for Peleș, but their website tells me it's change. However, it's worth a visit. Way smaller and less spectacular than Peleș, it has its charm. The only problem is that both close way too early, even during the summer. I've taken friends there on the way back to Bucharest form Brașov and if you get there after 16 there's a big chance you won't catch it open.
looks great, but it was closed when we went there
Nice smaller castle close to the big one. Still very impressive. Around half an hour walking from the train station.
