(always less than gardaland in the summer!) built by King Carol 1 in 1873/88 has the "Swiss" look! the internal aspects of the Italian and Bavarian renaissance. colonnaded lodges and in the center of the tower with clock, ground and top floor, full, dark, very wood and many stained glass windows that we have already seen in many parts of Europe!
Dear visitors, Please pay attention and don't buy forest fruits from the gypsies selling them at the entrance of the castle. They do not mind in selling each time these fruits in 'reused' baskets... if you know what I mean(straight out of the bin) ! Please do not encourage the sale of fruits bought in the supermarket and sold as forest fruits. Do not ruin your visit at such a beautiful place! Enjoy
Avoid. They load 200 people groups into the castle at once with one instructor. The instructor just runs through the castle to exit fast before the next group. Children have 0 chance to view / hear the information. This is tourist trap meant to maximize profit over experience. Would recommend to avoid.
