Romania: Peleş Castle

Isn't this castle breath-taking?

A few weeks ago, we shared pictures from when we explored the ancient Hunedoara Castle, Last week we shared about Bran Castle (AKA Dracula's castle).  Today we have pictures of the beautiful Peleş Castle located near Sinaia, Romania. Unlike the castle In Hunedoara, the Peleş Castle was not completed until the early 20th century, so it is fairly modern with such conveniences as a central vacuum (I had never heard of such a thing until visiting this castle...).
The inside of the castle was awe-inspiring, with each room decorated in a different theme with decor from different counties around the world. We have not pictures of the inside because it was forbidden (or we didn't want to pay the exorbitant fee to get a photography pass -- that's probably more like it). 
No fret. The outside of the castle is breathtaking!
There are three buildings on the ground of the castle: 1) the castle itself, 2) a chateau, and 3) a hunting lodge. We only visited the castle, and got the full tour. You could spend a whole day there! But this was the second to last day in Romania, and we were just about castled out! 
What do you think of this castle? I felt like I was Belle from Beauty & the Beast!
