Peles Castle is located in Sinaia, on the Prahova Valley not far from my town. Peleş Castle is one of the most important historical buildings in Romania, having a unique character and was, through its historical and artistic value, one of the most important monuments of its kind in Europe in the second half of the 19th century.
Built as the summer residence at the request of King Carol I of Romania, the castle remained the residence of the royal family until 1948 when it was taken by the communist regime. In 1953, Peles became a museum. In 2006, the castle was returned to King Mihai I of Romania. However, the King expressed his wish that the palace should continue to host the Peles National Museum. Occasionally, the castle is used for major events of national significance organized by the Royal Family.
If you come to Romania, do not hesitate to visit it. It is located in an amazing landscape.
