Full description

This full-day tour includes a visit to the Sinaia Monastery, the Royal Peles Castle, and wine tasting and traditional 3-course lunch at Azuga Wine Cellars. The winery dates from 1892 and was the official wine supplier of the Romanian Royal Family. Meet your driver in Bucharest and be taken to Sinaia, where you’ll visit the Sinaia Monastery. Founded in 1695, it was named after the famous monastery on Mount Sinai. There is a collection of valuable jewels here that belonged to the Cantacuzino family, and also a Romanian translation of the Bible, dating from 1668, and considered to be the earliest translation. Next on the itinerary is a stop at Peles Castle, also located in Sinaia. This is considered to be one of Europe’s most beautiful castles. Constructed of wood, stone, brick, and marble, the castle comprises over 160 rooms. It was built in the German Renaissance style, with elements from the German Baroque, Gothic, Italian Renaissance, and French Rococo styles. From Sinaia you’ll head to Azuga for wine tasting and lunch at Azuga Wine Cellars. You’ll enjoy the sparkling wines produced here and a 3-course lunch as well.

Guiden gjorde alt, hvad han kunne for at give os den bedst mulige tur. Der må have været noget miskommunikation med kontoret, da han ikke var klar over at klosteret var en del af turen. Vi fik alt hvad beskrivelsen nævnte, men 45 min er alt for lidt tid på Peles slot og gåturen dertil. Der var kun tid til at haste igennem grundplanen. Derfra var det en fantastisk tur, som klart kan anbefales.
