Peles Royal Castle in the ski resort city of Sinaia is the former summer residence of the Romanian royal family and shelters an important collection of works of art, rare furniture and valuable paintings. The castle is closed on Tuesdays, however the authorities opened it especially for our media group and we had a guided tour of what is considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, boasting a unique architecture. In Azuga we had a tour of the Rhein Azuga Wine Cellars, former supplier of wines to the Romanian Royal Court. Naturally we had to sample the wines as part of our research. In the afternoon we visited Bran Castle which is the most visited site in Romania due to its association with the fictional character Dracula in Bram Stoker’s novel. This medieval castle is best seen from the outside as it is perched on top of a rock crop and has an imposing appearance.
