The World’s Greatest Palaces – 18 February 2021 – 18/2/2021 – Thursday – SBS

Peles Castle in Romania is a magical palace, full of contradictions. Built in a medieval style in 1914, it may look like a fairy tale home, but Peles is filled with modern technological innovations. Commissioned by Romania’s first monarch King Carol, the castle took 40 years to build. As well as having ornate rooms and beautifully decorated halls, the palatial home has a central vacuum cleaner, retractable roof and even its own hydro-electric power plant. His Royal Highness, Prince Radu of Romania, tells us how, against the odds, the castle has survived war and Communist revolution. The story of Peles is the story of Romania itself.
