My husband and I visited Peles Castle and arrived early (before the ticket office opened). It was already quite busy as a tour group was there as well, but we expected this type of attraction to be busy. We wandered the beautiful grounds while we...More

This is a must see in Transylvania. Running hot and cold water, 30bathrooms, a central vacuum system, a retractable roof over the entrance hall. All done with impeccable, If rococo taste. If you have to skip Bran Castle to see Peles Castle, do it.

It is possible to right inside the courtyard but a ticket is required to tour the castle inside. It is very nice especially the surrounding area is lovely.

The tours are booked at the Castle at entry. You buy your ticket for 1 or both floors then go to the entrance and they will ask your language and then off you go. Don’t forget it costs extra to take photos inside Castle.

We stayed in an Airbnb in Sinaia and used it as a base to go to Bran and Brasov. Peles is right in Sinaia. Have fun.
