Peles Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania, on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia, built between 1873 and 1914. Its inauguration was held in 1883. It was constructed for King Carol I.
Peles castle was built as a royal summer residence by King Carol I
between 1873 and 1914 down the Bucegi Mountains, on the site named
Piatra-Arsa in Sinaia. On 10/22 of August 1875 the foundation
stone of Peles Castle was laid, followed by the official
inauguration of the residence on October 7, 1883. Almost 40 years
were needed to achieve the whole castle. The original plans were
formerly designed by architect Wilhelm von Doderer, then taken
over in 1876 by his assistant Johannes Schulz.
