Sinaia station

Our first station was at Sinaia.We just wanted to see the Pelles Castle which seems to be the main atraction,but as it proved it worth the time we spend around place even with carrying our suit cases all along.We walked....and we walked a lot! 

I would say that Sinaia is a very clean small town, perfectly match with the landscape worth the time to look around.The style of the buldings in combination with the old forest surround ithe town (which is "painted" purple (?!!) in the evening) gives a perfect goth image (yeeeeah!!!). Although we didn't spend the day there i think that Sinaia is a good place for short holydays since it combines relax ,sports (ski),sights ,lot of nature and warm people.

I have seen a castle before but the Pele castle is the best ...so far.Its a wonderful German Barock style castel surrounded by the beautiful forest.It started to buit 1873 and completed in 1914.So its relatively new ,it even has a central heating system and it is the first castle fully operated with electric power (even had a vacum cleaner.... thats  we were told)!!!!!!!The fun part is that the owner ( King Carol 1) never saw it fully complete so....it was inherit from his wife.......lucky she!!!!

If you ever diside to visit Romania you must definetly go to Sinaia.
