Pelisor Castle, Sinaia

(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Absolutely loved it! My favorite castle now :-) The interior is very well preserved, you can totally feel an atmosphere of the old times. I wish there were more historical info about the family and less about the architecture of the castle :-)
  • Beautiful place. I've been in both castles and both are great. But if I would have to visit again I would go only for the main castle. But for the first visit it definitely worths the time and money.
  • Not as spectacular as its neighbour (Peles) but entertaining enough. Don't miss it if you're into Jugendstil, since queen Maria, who was closely involved in the decorating part, was a big fan of that style.
  • Gorgeous! Stunning! Long lines to get in and not handicap friendly as the road leading up to the castle and bumpy cobblestone.
  • It's an impressive castle especially on the interiors. The gold room is absolutely speechless and there is nothing like it to compare
