In this castle, all is well finished. When we entered a woman gave us paper where there is (in English) the descriptions of all rooms. I suggest to visit this because you can immerse in the Royal family's story.

Fantastic place to visit - a fairytale palace in its grounds. We saw it lit up at night too, stunning. Took a tour around the smaller palace, interesting to learn more about the Romanian Royal Family. The rooms have been kept well

Pelisor castle is the smaller castle on the grounds of Peles castle. Beautiful setting and exterior. Was closed when we were there but were able to tour the grounds and admire the exterior.

Wonderfully preserved summer home of Queen Marie. Lots of history with beautifully restored/preserved art.

Them main castle was closed for the month that we were there but our program director stated she thought the small castle was more interesting. We had a very good guide who had a lot of information about the palace and the people. I was disappointed that there is a separate fee to take pictures inside.

This is a very nice little castle ; you can see some wonderful art nouveau , Belle Époque, decorated interiors ; by request you can have a guide who can give you all the information you need . It's worth seeing it . But try not to go on weekends , it's crowded and you 'll stand in the queues.

Compared to the bigger, Peles Castle, the Pelisor is more feminine in its design and especially in the interior, large part of it being decorated by Queen Mary of Romania. Equally impressive to its bigger sibling from my point of view. And really close to it, you can visit both in one shot.

Pelisor is a fantastic castle, with many decorations made by queen Mary of Romania. Is a very special room in castle, The Golden Room, when the queen died, when is now the queen's heart.

We have such beautiful places in Romania and Pelisor Castle is one of them. It is a trip through history. Starting from the entrance you are surrounded by elegance and with every room you visit you wish to go back into the past and live there. It's like a faity tale.
