Our trip starts from Bucharest, and in about 2 hours you will be in Sinaia City where you will visit the first castle: Peles Castle. The town was named after Sinaia Monastery of 1695, around which it was built. King Carol I of Romania built his summer home, Peleș Castle, near the town in the late nineteenth century.

Peles Castle was the first European castle entirely lit by electrical current.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle), Str. General Traian Mosoiu nr. 24, Bran 507025 Romania
Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend and perched high atop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stocker's Dracula. Surrounded by towers and ramparts, this “pugnacious little fortress”, as Queen Marie called it, is a truly stunning castle, especially against the beautiful background dominated by the Carpathian Mountains. Narrow winding stairways lead through some 60 timber rooms, many connected by underground passages, which house collections of furniture, weapons and armor dating from the 14th to the 19th centuries.

We went for this tour on the 16th July. There were only 6 of us including our tour guide/ driver, Florin. He really went the extra mile and stopped us at certain spots for picture taking. I wouldn't have gotten such a chance if I ended up touring in a big bus. It felt like a private tour as Florin gave us time to look around the places and patiently awaited for our return. Though we return back to Bucharest late, it was really worth it. The Peles Castle is definitely a must see. Picture taking in the peles castle will cost you extra. For lunch, we were brought to a villa overlooking the Bran castle which was a bonus in this tour. I really enjoyed the tour, thanks to Florin!
