Full description
Once you have met your guide, your journey into Queen Marie's world will begin. You'll start with the Pelisor Castle, which is located 200 meters behind its "big and more famous brother" of Peles Castle. It was King Carol I's wish to have the future king and queen of Romania, Ferdinand and Marie, close to him so he could groom them both to take over the country.

Once you enter the castle an enormous hall will open in front of your eyes. The Honor Hall is entirely decorated with oak wood, reminding you of the early 1900's style in a very unique way. At the same level you can admire King Ferdinand's office, which is decorated in a very raw German neo-Renaissance style.

The second floor is full of rooms which were occupied mainly by Queen Marie's children. These include Prince Nicolae (the family's black sheep), Prince Carol (who took over the throne of Romania after King Ferdinand's death), Princess Marioara, and Princess Elisabeta. You'll also see Queen Marie's office where she would often "close" herself into the world of art.

The third floor is probably the most appealing for tourists. There you can admire the Golden Room, the very place where the Queen took her last breath in October of 1938. Today you can also admire a massive gold box, which contains with the queen's actual heart.
