The Peleș Castle is located in Sinaia mountain resort, in Prahova county
One of the most beautiful castles in Europe
Peleș Castle represents a Neo-Renaissance complex situated in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, in Prahova County on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia. The castle is located 124 km from the Romanian capital Bucharest.
The inauguration of the building was held in 1883. It was constructed for King Carol I of Romania. When King Carol I, under whose reign the country gained its independence, visited for the first time the site of the future castle in 1866, he fell in love with the magnificent mountain scenery.
Peleș Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in all of Europe. Besides its beauty and unique construction, the building had very modern facilities for its time.
Furthermore, it was the first European castle entirely lit by electricity, thanks to the electrical plant in the Peles Valley. In total, the castle has 160 rooms, each one with its own identity and theme.
