Peleș Castle | Sinaia, Romania

Peleș Castle in Sinaia during a sunny day

After our long way down from the Bucegi Mountains, we were pretty exhausted and just wanted to find a pub to finish the day with a well-deserved beer. The weather hasn’t been the best; all day long it was pretty greyish which was quite unlucky considering the amazing landscape. But when we came to a parting of the ways (one toward the town and the other one had “castle” written on it) we just had to go the extra mile.

And as so often, we got rewarded for it. The Peleș Castle (Castelul Peleș) is a real beauty in the Romanian Carpathians. In addition to that, the sun finally broke through the clouds. Not for long since it quickly disappeared behind the mountains, but long enough to enlighten the castle in all its beauty.
