Royal Escape

Depart from your hotel and drive north out of Bucharest to Sinaia Resort (~2h drive), a place referred to by many as “the Pearl of the Carpathians”. Founded in the late 17th century, Sinaia is by far the most interesting and architecturally relevant resort in Romania, compared by some to a huge open-air museum. In the late 19th century, Sinaia went through a development boom after the building of the King’s royal residence. Proof of this will be all around you. Here, you will visit the breathtaking Peles Castle, the former residence of the Hohenzollern King Carol I. Recently ranked 6th in the top of “Most Amazing Castles in the World” (http://opentravel.com/blogs/15-amazing-castles-from-around-the-globe), PELES will most likely become one of the highlights of your travel experiences. It will give your insight into the life of the Romanian Royal Family and into the greatest period in Romania’s recent history. After your inside visit you will enjoy a traditional lunch in a local restaurant, situated within the castle’s premises, in the midst of the astounding forests and peaks of the Carpathians. You will continue then with a short stop at the picturesque Sinaia Monastery and find out some more about the Romanian Royal Family, about religion in Romania and the people's relation with the Church. You return to Bucharest through the scenic Prahova Valley and the beautiful fields of the Romanian south.
