    Peleș Castle is nothing short of a fairytale fantasy come to life. When King Carol I visited the foothills of the Bucegi mountains in the 1860s, he was struck by its sheer beauty and commissioned the building of a palace there. It took 10 years to build but ended up turning into one of the most beautiful castles in all of Europe. The resulting ornate 160-room palace is a striking mix of Neo-Renaissance and Gothic Revival architecture. When Romania fell under Communist rule, Peleș was seized, and the castle was closed between 1975 and 1990. It was only after the revolution of 1989 that it reopened to the public as a museum.

    As you enter the impressive hallway on the ground floor, see the enormous reception room and the four statues that represent the four seasons. Continue onwards to one of the biggest weapon collections Romania (and Europe) has ever seen - a whopping total of 4,000 pieces from all over the world. Move on to see the king's office followed by the colorful Arabic and the Turkish rooms. On the 1st floor, stroll past the many rooms used by members of the royal house, and see the king's and queen's apartments. The grandest of these rooms is the Imperial Suite, which was specially decorated for the Austrian Emperor, who, somewhat ironically, never spent a night in the castle. This is a truly enchanting place to visit and an absolute must-see. Take in the luxurious atmosphere and enjoy this tour that is guided through the past.

    If you've chosen the option that comes with entry into Pelișor Castle, you get to see the residence of King Carol I's nephew and heir, the future King Ferdinand. Designed by the Czech architect Karel Liman, the castle is in the Art Nouveau style; you'll find here chambers, working cabinets, a chapel, and "the golden room". Queen Marie made several artistic choices about the design of the palace, and you'll see a reflection of her personal style here: it combines Art-Nouveau elements with Byzantine and Celtic elements.
