    sidestreet market: stop by to buy some arts and crafts

    Sidestreet Market

    If you want to buy some traditional things (wood carvings, handmade tablecloths, wool sweaters. etc) stop by one of the numerous local markets that you will notice on the side of the roads. Feel free to bargain if you like to buy something from here. If you do not agree on a price, walk away and the vendor will call you back.

    Bargain, bargain, bargain!

    There are many shops that line the streets leading up to either entrance to Peles. They have many of the same items, so bargaining is a must- and can be fun. The Romanian people are generally outgoing and friendly, so it's easy and fun to spend some time looking at their wares and chatting at the same time. Items include everything from handmade lace and wool items, to cheap tourist trinkets.

    What to buy: Beautiful hand made items of lace, cotton, or wool are less expensive than at home. They also have distinctively carved and decorated wood bowls and trays.

  • Hit the outdoor bazaars

    The craftsmanship in Romania is very good and with good exchange rates the prices are very reasonable.

    What to buy: The handmade table cloths are beautiful.

    We especially liked the hand painted eggs. I think they are made in Moldolvia.

    The Donut Shop (GOGOSERIA)

    Stop by one of the Gogoseria booths you will see all over the town and buy some Romanian donuts. The plain ones are called "gogosi" while the ones stuffed with cheese are called "langosi".

    Souvenir Stalls: The walk to Peles Castle

    by iwys Written Dec 31, 2008

    The walk up to Peles Castle from the station is lined with souvenir stalls selling everything from T-shirts to models of the castle. From what I could see, it was mostly junk.
