The Peles National Museum in Sinaia will not be used for weddings, its representatives have announced after the president of the Invitation Romania Travel, Gheorghe Fodoreanu has said the British would be interested in such events. “The Peles National Museum has never organized and will never organize weddings or other such events at the Peles castle or the Pelisor castle, as it would contradict its basic function, which is to protect the historical space and the national patrimony,” writes a statement from the museum.
Gheorghe Fodoreanu had said British tourists have started to ask for weddings and team buildings in Peles and Bran castles in Romania.
Peles Castle, a former summer residence of King Carol I and Queen Elisabeth, became a museum in 1953. In 1975 it was closed down for revamping works and re-opened in 1990. The castle belongs to Romania's Royal Family since 2007, when the state returned the property. The Royal Family has rented back both Peles and Pelisor castles to the Romanian state, in a contract valid until 2013.
