Description

Peles Castle Sinaia

Peles Castle has about 170 rooms and was the first entirely electrified castle in Europe. This was possible because electricity was supplied by the Electric Plant on the shores of the Peles stream. It is also important to know that Peles is home to one of the most important and most valuable collections of paintings in Europe – about 2.000 pieces.

Peles Castle was built at the initiative of King Carol I to serve as a summer residence. At the same time, other annexes were raised, such as: Guard Corps, Economat, Foisor House, Gardens, Electric Plant. The “Sipot” Villa was built a little bit later and became for a time the work of the architect Karel Liman. Until the Peles Castle was finished in 1883, King Carol I and Queen Elizabeth lived at Foisor House.

Brasov City

Situated in the heart of Romania, at the crossroads of all roads, Brasov is the city that attracts most tourists every single year. Here, life is simple, full of color, taste and aroma, one can really relax and enjoy the fresh montain air.

Brasov is lucky to have a tourist season all year round and is one of the few places in Romania where you can enjoy being on vacation regardless of the weather. Here you have everything you may want: the coolness of the mountains, the well-maintained beauty of the medieval buildings and monuments, the comfort of the accommodation, the hospitality of the restaurants, the variety and the abundance of shopping.

Established by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 and became one of Transylvania’s most important economic and cultural urban centers due to its location and good connections with Wallachia and Moldova. Over the years there have been numerous buildings that have become, in time, monuments and tourist attractions.

Brasov wasn’t always the name of the city. For a period of 10 years, between 1950 and 1960, Brasov was named “the Stalin City”, becoming the capital of the Stalin Region, which included the cities of Odorhei, Miercurea Ciuc and St. George.

Brasov Old Town

The Council Square can be considered Point Zero of Brasov. It is the most visited place in the city and here come over 1 million tourists each year. It is also the heart of the city and the place from where all the road distances to all corners of the country are measured.

In the Council Square there used to be the Pillar of Infamy, where witches were judged and public corporal punishments were committed for various offenses.

Originally built as a watchtower, the building known today as the “House of the Council” (one of the city’s symbols) was transformed into a town hall as the city grew. Today, the edifice hosts two major objectives: the County Museum of History (1950) and the Tourist Information Center (2005).

The Weavers Bastion is one of the seven towers built around Brasov, in order to protect the city from invaders. It is also one of the best preserved and nowadays it sometimes hosts concerts and medieval shows.

The Black Church – the largest Gothic church in in Southeastern Europe

The Black Church is perhaps the most famous and photographed building in Brasov, the largest Gothic edifice in Southeastern Europe and the most representative monument of Gothic architecture in Romania, dating back to the 14th century. The church can house around 5,000 people. It has the largest bell (6 tons) of Romanian and the largest organ (4,000 tubes) in Southeastern Europe.
