Great historic and authentic place. Nice to visit and take wonderful photos. Good for families, couple and just friend, ant time of year but when there is a clear view it makes the visit better. In November the castle is closed for maintenance.

Went to this castle on an extended Rick Steves tour and found it just beautiful. The surrounding area is beautiful although there are no formal gardens. The inside of the castle is spectacular. We had a guide who walked us through it which always makes it more interesting. Well worth a visit but beware that it is very very crowded.

We visited the castle in the autumn and it was absolutely fantastic. Inside and outside is a wonderful piece of art, worthy of your time. Don't miss it if you visit Romania.

This palace exceeded my expectations. It worths waiting in long queues. It's cold outside even on a sunny day.
