Europe has some stunning castles to match its’ stunning scenery, history, and endless culture. But where will one find Europe’s most beautiful castle…? This is argued to be Peles Castle, lying in central Romania just a short drive from Sinaia.
Peles Castle was created in the late 19th Century and was home to King Carol during his reign. The castle linked Transylvania and Wallachia and is argued to have cost today’s equivalent of US $120 million.
Today, the castle remains to be one of the most visually stunning castles in all of Europe, and it is not difficult to see why travellers have proclaimed this to be the most beautiful castle in Europe.
Tips for Visiting Peles Castle
Be sure to arrive early to avoid crowds, with weekdays being a preferred day to visit over busy weekends.
