Built on an existing medieval route connecting Transylvania and Wallachia, Peles Castle is a stunning Neo-Renaissance style castle. Located in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, Peles Castle was the residence of King Carol I of Romania. He was delighted by this fascinating mountain scenery and decided to establish here, his home.
Inaugurated in 1883, this stylish and luxurious castle, with its 160 rooms all filled with some of the finest and priceless European art collections, was the first fully electrified castle in Europe and it is one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, a must-see destination if you are planning to explore Romanian Castles.
Over the years some buildings were annexed to the castle: the Foisor Hunting Home (Foisorul), the Guardian’s Rooms (Camerele Gardianului), the Bursarship (Economatul), the Royal Stables (Grajdurile Regale), and Pelisor Castle - a smaller and an excellent replication of the main building – the residence of King Ferdinand I and Queen Mary of Romania.
Castle's courtyard with a joyful decoration and a fountain in the middle, building's facades, stained-glass windows and the beauty of the sculpted wood will amaze you. Inside you will be impressed by the Armory Rooms, the Council Room, the Concert Room, the Florentine Room, the Moresque Room, The French Room, the Turkish Room, the Reception Room, along with the Imperial Suite.
