It's commercial but still worth it. Take your photo from the lake. The rooms are tiny but have furniture and lovely explanations mainly from Queen Mary's era in the early 1900s. There is info about Dracula and his original castle. The stairways are super narrow, sometimes two way. That anyone actually lived here in the modern world is amazing. The rooms really are small. Try to get there before the crowds for a more relaxed visit. Otherwise you and everyone else are pushing through one small space to another.

Lovely castle set in a beautiful location. The entrance is good value and you can choose an audio guide to tour you round if you like. Each room is well detailed regarding it's previous use. There are a few stairs but not too many to affect the experience. There are many tourist aimed stalls around to purchase a Dracula themed memory. Worth a visit if just to see the location.

A castle which you should visit before Peles and not after! Known because of Dracula's legend but a very nice Saxon fortress around 1377 which was also used since 1920 by the royal family of Romania. Built on a big rock with a medieval architecture, the castle is a landmark in Romania which is an extraordinary place to visit and spend some time. Around the castle are several small restaurants serving good food and a lot of pensions where you can spend a few days of your vacation. My son visited already several times in the last 5 years and he will not refuse when I mention to come again next year!

One of Europe's marvels and presumed home of the mythical Dracula.
On a realistic side, it is a must see jewel of the Carpathian mountains.
Be advised that walking from the parking lots to the castle might prove to be a real challenge for the elderly because of the steep path that needs to be climbed.
Outside the castle are plenty of shops to buy souvenirs. I recommend you take your time and see all of them and decide afterwords what to buy and from whom, as prices and quality vary.

A great castle in great settings. My only gripe is that as it is so popular there are massive queues unless you're there really early, they let everyone in together so it becomes really packed, almost like a cattle market! But as I said the castle it's self is stunning and maintained to a high standard..I also visited on labour day which probably didn't help with the queues.
