Peles Castle reviews
Very well organized & worth visting. Not even close to the hell we experienced at Bran, staying in the queue for 3 hours or more. Here everything is organized & we had a very well prepared guide... more »
Peleş is beautiful and is worth visiting. I understand that guided tours are the only way to properly understand a lot about castles but i would love to see more informations about objects and... more »
A beautiful walk until there. A beautiful view from the outside. The first problems arise with the long line of tourists, which I understand it can be difficult to handle. Be ready to wait even if you come early. Outside of the beautiful castle outside and inside, the tours provided could be better (at least mine wasn't that good). But the worst part it was the speed how things went and the size of the group, which was too large. You barely could hear and make questions because you needed to move fast all the time. I ended up going to the second floor, and I must say there wasn't almost no tourists there. The reason is simple: you have to pay more. This time I even ended up walking by myself, without a guide. But is was way more enjoyable because I could actually appreciate the beauty of the castle. And the most beautiful room I saw was on that second floor - it's worth the money. The only thing I have to say to the people who run the castle is to attempt to organize this better, to make the tours more enjoyable and with smaller groups.
It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. The castle is truly magnificent and well worth the price. I was enthralled with its ornate beauty, you don't see craftsmanship like that every day. Everyone should go and see it and enjoy the surrounding beauty too.
