My husband was really interested in visiting castles in Romania. Whenever we go there we don’t really have enough time to travel, but last May I took him somewhere special… Now, get ready, this place is absolutely gorgeous!
Situated in the Carpathian Mountains, it was inaugurated in 1883. It is called Peleş Castle (read Pelesh).
It is situated 130 km away from Bucharest and towards the country’s centre. It is surrounded by woods and stunning views. Believe me, it is worth the trip.
If you fall in love with the outside of the castle, you won’t want to leave from the inside, you will want to move in there. It has different design styles and influences and it will definitely make you want to go back there again.
This was the summer residence of King Carol I of Romania (1839–1914) and he wanted to have this place from the moment he first visited the site, right before construction. He just fell in love with the scenery.
If you’re still not convinced, just remember there is a restaurant and coffee shop right beside the castle, and there are places you can walk and do more site seeing, so just book your tickets and go visit Peleş Castle!
