Peleș Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle built for King Carol I of Romania between 1873 and 1914. The Castle was used as a location for the film The Brothers Bloom. The exterior of the castle is breathtaking and married flawlessly to the Carpathian Mountains in its background. More interesting however, are the immaculate rooms within, which draw decorative inspiration from countless countries around the world. There is a fee to take pictures within the castle walls, but it is well worth it although the use of flash is strictly prohibited. DON'T however, waste a leu on the machine-drawn espresso outside unless you are in danger of freezing to death in the harsh Romanian winter.
