Peleș Castle is fairly new when compared to some of the ancient castles around Western Europe but it is still steeped in history. Construction only finished in 1914 under the rule of King Carol I of Romania and the cost of the castle in today's money would be approx. $120,000,000.
Although the structure is officially referred to as a castle it does not have the defensive battlements one would associate with a medieval castle. Peleș Castle is still one of the most beautiful buildings I have had the pleasure to visit. The attention to detail inside the building on the artwork and decorations is incredible. If you are ever in the area I strongly urge you pay this magnificent building a visit.
