Activities

SINAIA

Peleș Castle  is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania, on an existing medieval route linkingTransylvania and Wallachia, built between 1873 and 1914. Its inauguration was held in 1883. It was constructed for King Carol I.

The Peles Castle is one of the most famous castles in Romania, along with Bran Castle. If Bran is linked somewhat to the Romanian ruler Vlad Tepes, Peles is distinguished by the fact that it was a royal residence over time, its sumptuous rooms being sometimes used as decors for American films.

This castle was used as a summer residence by the kings of Romania. It was built at the wish of the first Romanian king, Carol I, after the plans of architects Johannes Schultz and Karel Liman and decorated by JD Heymann from Hamburg, August Bembe from Mainz and Berhard Ludwig from Vienna, hence the similarity to German castles.

Peles Castle is a unique construction, one of the most important monuments of its kind in 19th century Europe.

The story of the castle begins with a visit made by Charles I in the town of Sinaia. The king remained enchanted by the beauty of this place, located near the mountains. At that time, Sinaia was actually a small village, named Podul Neagului. Carol decided that the castle should be built in a secluded spot known as Piatra Arsa. In 1872 he bought the land and the construction began a year later. It was not an easy project to accomplish, because workers had to master the difficult elements of nature, such as underground watercourses and landslides.
