About the guru Adriana

I like to travel around the world to discover the most interesting, but more. I like to speak about my country, with a lot of legends and histories about my people. Like a travel guide, I have an experience of 4 years, in Roumania, Malta, and Turkey.

About the tour

In 1690 a Wallachian nobleman built a small monastery inspired by his voyage to Mount Sinai; a village developed around it. In the 1860s, attracted by the area's wild beauty, Romania's first king, Charles of Hohenzollern, decided to build here a summer residence, which would become Peles Castle. Soon the place became the favorite resort of the Romania upper class, who started raising their own luxurious holiday villas in the area. Impressive hotels, casinos, modern restaurants and shops followed, which, by the end of the 19th century, turned Sinaia from an obscure village into Romania's unofficial summer capital.

The tour optionaly can to include a guided tour inside of the Peles Castle, Begun by King Carol I in 1873 as a summer residence, these gothic revival fantasy castles pay homage to nearly every architectural style in Europe, as well as including all the mod-cons, such as lifts, central heating, plumbing and electric sky lights. Peleş contains a large armory collection, secret passages, imperial suit, a hall of mirrors, stone lions and everything a fairytale castle 'should' have.

It is organized by an Attested Tour-Guide.

Participation only with an advance reservation.
