Pelisor Castle (Castelul Pelișor)

Aleea Peleșului 2, Sinaia, Romania

The basics

With Pelisor Castle sitting just a few hundred feet uphill from Peles Castle, it makes sense for travelers to visit both castles in one outing. Many Transylvania castle tours allow visitors to explore Peles estate, as well as Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle. Multi-day tours often combine castle visits with other top Transylvanian attractions, such as the Alba Carolina Citadel, the Turda Salt Mine (Salina Turda), and the UNESCO-listed old town of Sighișoara.
