Peles Castle

   Being one of the most spectacular castles in Europe, Peles Castle dazzles tourists with its impressive architecture, amazing details of décor elements and a truly 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 or, as it was called then, Piatra Arsa Estate. The grandiose architecture is the work of Karel Liman and Johannes Schultz


Bran 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.

     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.
