Peles and Cantacuzino Castles Small Group Day Tour from Brasov
The tour to Peles and Cantacuzino castles comprises beauty and history in one. Both castles have interesting tales to tell its visitors incorporated in architecture, shape and art.
Peles is Europe's first electrified castle with all modern utilities including central heating, running hot and cold water, central vacuum cleaner, an electrical elevator and much more already from the beginning of the 20th century.
Visiting Peles Castle is almost like being inside an art work itself, every step we take inside we get mesmerized by every small detail, the different carvings, paintings and furniture piece competing with well known castles and palaces around the world.
Cantacuzino Castle was the summer home of a well known politician of the 19th century Grigore Cantacuzino. He used to be one of the wealthiest man in Romania at that time and decided to contruct this authentic monument with a breathtaking panorama to the Bucegi Mountains.
However the size and amount of detail cannot compete with the Royal Peles which makes it to be one of the most beautiful buildings of the area. The castle was constructed in neo-romanian architectural style is surrounded with alleys and pathways which lead to fountains, waterfalls and small caves.
The decorative repertoireof the construction has a romantic character. The marble interiors, the columns, the staine glass windows and much more reveal to us a architectural masterpiece. All these elements cought the eye of movie and tv producers as well and the castle was choosen to be the location of a recent tv series called Wednesday.
Visit the Sinaia Monastery, located in Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania, was founded by Prince Mihail Cantacuzino in 1695 and named after the great Saint Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai in Egypt. As of 2005, it is inhabited by 13 Christian Orthodox monks led by hegumen Macarie Boguș. It is part of the Bucharest archdiocese.
The Old Church was built in 1695. In 2006, it was closed to begin a restoration project to return it to its former beauty. The original interior painting was completed by Pârvu Mutu and were restored for the first time in 1795. The Old Church has reopened as of 2016.
