Peles castle is a wonder of Neo-Renaissance architecture combined with the classic Romanian style, located high up on Sinaia's hills. A must-visit for any foreigners looking to understand a bit of Romanian history and architecture , or just a lovely walk to a historic location.

Worth the extra to see the first floor! We stayed in town and walked up but there is some parking. We ate lunch at the Carol Gastro Bierhaus at the castle. Good selection of beer and good food.

Hi Liran, I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to that. I haven't checked online. My friend and I just turned up and queued. Luckily for us the wait wasn't too long.
