About Peles Castle Peles Castle has been, from the turn of the 19th century, the main point of attraction of Sinaia resort. The edifice was built in 1873 on the order of Carol de Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen – King of Romania from 1866 – and is an architectural mixture of the German School and neo-renaissance style. The castle has 160 rooms, all of them opulently decorated in leather and wood from the most valuable tree species. The Armour Hall, Reception Hall, Concert Hall and, of course, the Royal Chamber are famous. Peles also served as the retreat residence of most of Romania’s monarchs – Carol I who died here in 1914, King Ferdinand and Queen Maria.
About Bran (Dracula’s) Castle Bran castle owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth Bram Stoker created around Dracula. Documentary evidence of the castle dates back as far as 1377. A true fortress located in Bran village, aprox. 25 km away from Brasov, all its walls are made of stone and the rooms and the narrow corridors form a labyrinth of hidden corners and secret chambers. In 1920, Queen Mary, the niece of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, turned the castle into a beautiful summer residence. The legend goes that the heart of Queen Mary, kept in a silver box, was discovered in a niche of the building…
