Near Brasov, where we spent last night, is the famous mountain resort called Sinaia, where people love to come on holiday. Even King Carol I fell in love with the surroundings when he first visited the area in 1866. The King commissioned the construction of a royal hunting preserve and summer retreat, and the foundation was laid for Peleș Castle on 22 August 1873. It was inaugurated in 1883.
We have some free time to explore the old city. I get my shopping errands done. Dinner is at a restaurant right on the central square tonight. Returning to the hotel, the lights are just getting turned on at the Fortress above.
