This is a real castle! Comparing the Bran's castle of Graf Dracula and that one, Peles is way better. Don't miss to visit it!!!

This is one of the best castles in Europe as it's relatively modern and is well furnished so you get a good idea about what life would have been like

This castle just seems to emerge from a fairy tale ! It is just beautiful, not only in itself, but the whole environment is completely magical. Definitely a must-see.

The rooms are amazing and gives a real look at the not so distant past... the tour is a bit hectic, and busy so not a gentle walk around... worth a visit

The roads are good, but there are many curves and hairpin bends, so you have to drive slowly.
