Once in Sinaia you will visit:

The Peles Castle

One of the most spectacular castles in Europe. It dazzles tourists with impressive architecture, amazing details of décor elements and certainly the spectacular natural setting. Peles Castle was built to become the summer residence of King Carol I of Romania and had cultural, administrative and symbolic purpose.

It was built between 1873 and 1914 on a 1000 hectares domain, situated on Sinaia Estate, also called Piatra Arsa Estate. The magnificent architecture is the work of Karel Liman and Johannes Schultz.

Pelisor Castle

The castle was built between 1899 – 1902 as a gift from King Charles I to his royal heirs. It is part of the vast architectural ensemble created by King Charles I in Sinaia. In other words, the castle is an important component of the cultural heritage of the Romanian people.

From Sinaia we will go to visit Dracula’s Castle in Bran. 

Bran Dracula’s Castle

Associated rather to the myth of Dracula than true historic figures, the castle gained its fame following Bram Stoker’s homonym novel. The history of the Bran settlement (which means “gate” in Turkish) begins in the time of the Teutonic knights, in the 13th century, when it was a mere fortress. Only a century later did the people of Brasov received permission to build a castle which was finished in 1388.

The trip back to your accommodation in Bucharest will take 3-3.5 hours.

Pelisor Castle

Pelisor Castle in SinaiaPelişor Castle was built between 1899 and 1902, at the request of King Carol I, to offer a residence to the hereditary princes. Considered the “Dream House” of Queen Mary, Pelişor Castle combines German and Romanian elements. Above all it illustrates the Queen belief in the beauty, revealing her bold, mysterious and romantic personality.

Besides, Pelisor keeps the glorious memory of the “Queen of all the Romanians”, being the place where the Queen Mary has passed into eternity.

Inauguration took place on May 24, 1903. The inaugural Act was painted by Queen Mary on parchment: “We, Carol I, King of Romania, built this house adjacent to the towering Peles castle for our loving grandchildren. to the church to bring the good of the sky, we, Ferdinand, the principle of Romania with Mary, I received the principy in this new building, with a gracious heart and full of love. I am with new children, Carol, Elizabeth and Mary, in the year of salvation 1903, and the reign of King Charles 37 on May 24. I gave him his name, Pelişor. “

As a result, Pelisor Castle became an integral part of an architectural ensemble built by King Carol I on the Peles Valley. First Peles Castle – summer residence of the royal family – and then House of Knights, Economat, Royal Guard House, Architects’ House and Garden House.

After the Revolution, specialists of Peleş Museum Complex started the reconstruction and extention of inventory. Therefore, in February 1993 Pelişor was inaugurated as a museum and opened to the public.

Associated rather to the myth of Dracula than true historic figures, the castle gained its fame following Bram Stoker’s homonym novel. The history of the Bran settlement (which means “gate” in Turkish) begins in the time of the Teutonic knights, in the 13th century, when it was a mere fortress. Only a century later did the people of Brasov received permission to build a castle which was finished in 1388.

     Having a troubled history and being passed over between several owners, including being briefly owned by Mircea the Wise, Bran Castle finally ends up in the ownership of Queen Maria in 1920. The current appearance and interior decorations are part of the Queen’s legacy as she was the one who oversaw the restoration works and was in charge of decoration.
