  • 1. Peleș Castle ( [kasˈtelulˈpele ]) is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian ʃMountains, in Sinaia (44 km from Brasov), Prahova County, Romania, on anexisting medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia.The building of the castle began in 1873 under the direct order of the Viennesearchitect Wilhem Doderer and was continued in 1876 by his assistant, JohannSchultz de Lemberg. During 1877-1879 because of the war they abandoned work.Thats why the castle was inaugurated only on October 7, 1883. The location forthe castle was chosen by the German prince Carol I de Hohenzollern, who was tobecome a king and it draws its name from the neighboring brooks which passesthrough the courtyard. The castle was built in wood, stone, bricks and marble. Atowering statue of King Carol I by Raffaello Romanelli overlooks the mainentrance. Many other statues are present on the seven Italian neo-Renaissanceterrace gardens, mostly of Carrara marble executed by the Italian sculptorRomanelli. The gardens also host fountains, urns, stairways, guarding lions,marble paths, and other decorative pieces.Peles Castle is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe.
