The castle is beautiful, just like the surrounding gardens.

Absolutely beautiful - from the outside and the inside. It is the most ornate thing I've seen inside, and its rooms feature many different styles from all over the world. The architecture is astounding. I thoroughly recommend having the full tour. I've done Bran castle as well, and can say that this one is FAR superior
We were amazed at the splendor of the castle and furnishings. It looks as though someone could live there today, it was so clean and fresh. Our guide was informative and patient with us and told us "side" stories that made the tour both informative and interesting. The extra cost to take photos was well worth it. Overall, this is an excellent place to visit.
