Inside the Castle That Inspired Resident Evil Village’s Castle Dimitrescu
Aleea Peleșului 2, Sinaia 106100, Romania
Capcom’s most recent survival-horror game, Resident Evil Village takes players inside Castle Dimitrescu, an eerie and equally beautiful 15th-century Medieval castle located in Eastern Europe. Castle Dimitrescu was actually based on Peleș Castle, a Romanian Neo-Renaissance castle that was built between 1873-1914 by King Carol I. The 34,000 square foot castle has over 170 lavishly furnished and decorated rooms, many with dedicated themes from world cultures such as Turkish, Moorish, French, and Imperial. Reddit user u/Smooth_Skin_Operator created a chart with comparisons between Resident Evil Village and Peleș Castle. The castle has also been used in many movies including Netflix’s A Christmas Prince films.
