Impressive Castle, perfectly preserved, which is on the "must do" list of anyone visiting the area. Guided tour is offered, and for larger groups you should arrange in advance if you need to have the tour delivered in another language.

This castle is a must-go if you visit Romania. There are so many castles in Europe which are much more well-known and bigger in size. The level of sophistication and attention given is rather rare! Everything is carefully design and put together according to King...More

Sinaia is, for me, unexpected beautiful tourist destination. So nice nature and so nice buildings. Peles castle is the most attractive. MUST to visit!

The roads are good, but there are many curves and hairpin bends, so you have to drive slowly.
