Peles Castle

The castle is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe and in the world .

Peles Castle was built by the prince Carol I de Hohenzollern, who was to become a king as a summer royal residence, on Peles Valley, in 1883.

Peles Castle was the first castle in Europe with central heating and electricity.

Peles Castle was built in wood, stone, bricks and marble and comprises more than 160 rooms. The representative style used is German Renaissance, but one can easily discover elements belonging to the Italian Renaissance, Gothic, German Baroque and French Rococo style.

Rembrandt reproductions line the walls of the king's office at Peles Castle while rows of books in the library conceals a secret passage leading to the 2nd floor of the castle. There is also a gallery of mirrors, and dining room has a leather clad ceiling.In the Florence hall, Michelangelo's reproductions hang below a ceiling carved from glide linden wood. The Venetian room is equally impressive.

Peles Castle is surrounded by seven terraces decorated with statues (sculptured by the Italian, Romanelli), stone-made-wells, ornamental vases and Carara marble. The architects used an abundance of wooden decoration, both for the exterior and for the interior of the castle, which confers a very special quality to the building.

Also Peles Castle shelters one of the most important and most valuable painting collections in Europe, almost 2.000 pieces.

The location of Peles Castle complete the beauty of the Carpathian Mountains.
