Day 1

Bucharest - Sinaia

Group pick up from "Henri Coanda" Airport Bucharest.

Transfer to Sinaia mountain resort, the ”Pearl of the  Carpathians”, visit of the Peles Castle, former residence of Romania's Kings. Built by King Carol I of Romania (born Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen dynasty), as his summer residence, the Peles Castle shelters a huge collection of works of art, rare furnitures, weapons collections, valuable books, and over 2.000 paintings in its 160 rooms. The architects have used an abundance of wooden decorations, outside and inside the castle, combined with stone, bricks and marble, providing a special feeling. 

Built like a fairy tale castle, in German Renaissance style and surrounded by the majestic Carpathian mountains, the Peles Castle reveals its beauty on the outside, as well as on the inside. The Peles Castle is surrounded by seven terraces decorated with statues, intricate stone-made wells, ornamental vases and Carara marble. 

The Peles Castle's architecture profiled against the snow-capped mountain peaks is a stunning and breathtaking view; one of the finest castles one can ever see.

Dinner and accommodation in Brasov.
