Today I woke up with memories of our trip to Peles Castle in Sinaia, Romania. I thought about a photo that I had taken but never processed. So I went through the hard drives and to my astonishment, I discovered that the trip was already ten years ago! Incredible how time flies.
So I quickly went through the 358 shots that I took in Sinaia. We took the Cable Car up to the mountain, which is named after the biblical Mount Sinai. We saw a bear steak on the menu (I still regret not ordering it). We’ve heard the wolves howling while we descended on foot.
After a whole day of hiking, we reached Peles Castle. All day was rather cloudy, and the sun came through only occasionally. But right when we arrived at Peles Castle, the sky cleared up and illuminated the scene in front of our eyes in the best way possible.
Built-in the late 19th century by King Carol I, the castle is a stunning example of German Renaissance architecture, with a mix of medieval and baroque elements.
One of the most impressive features of the castle is its grand façade, adorned with intricate carvings and sculptures. Visitors can explore the castle’s 160 rooms, each decorated with unique furnishings and artwork. The castle also boasts an impressive armory, featuring a collection of weapons and armor from all over the world.
If you want to get a ticket to get into Peles Castle, you find it here. However, to enjoy this view, you can stay on public grounds and do not need to pay.
