Beautiful castle, one of the most modern in Eastern Europe. They have central heating, vacuum cleaners, plumbing, and a sunroof! Stunning wood carvings,and paintings. You cannot take pictures with flash and if you do take pictures there is about $20 fee. It's worth it though....More

Built by King Carol I of Romania from the mid-1800's through till he died in the early 1900's, this place is almost a gingerbread and cream castle. Borderline kitsch. But part of a national heritage almost lost when the mad dictator considered pilfering items for...More

Visits are by guided tours only and you will be told off for wandering off on your own and also for photography except in a couple of rooms. Very opulent palace.
