Castle Dimitrescu Is Based On A Real Place - And You Can Visit It

There’s no doubt that Resident Evil is taking over at the moment, and while the series is rife with iconic locales, none have had a tighter cultural grip than Castle Dimitrescu, home of the Lady who dominated Twitter. Its unsettling combo of lights and darks offer the feeling of dread that comes with exploring a location that feels out of time, like a building that doesn’t suit the modern settings of the Resident Evil games. It’s a testament to the developers and designers of Village that Castle Dimitrescu feels so dark and oppressive. Well, as it turns out, it’s based on a very real building and one that super fans of the series could be able to visit.

 

Where Is The Real Castle Dimitrescu?

Reddit user Smooth_Skin_Operator has pointed out that Peles Castle in Romania must be a point of reference for Castle Dimitrescu, due to its style and surrounding landscapes. Their post in the Resident Evil subreddit shows off the exterior and interior of the gorgeous old castle, and the castle it inspired for the horror series. It might be a little snowier outside than we see in the game, but the same maximalist and grand interior design runs through the old building. The dinginess might be amped up in Resident Evil’s reimagining of Peles, but the design and architecture are all there. The Reddit user has a point - it looks pretty close.

But, most importantly, the castle that inspired Castle Dimitrescu is a location you can actually visit (COVID pending, of course). Upon complete reopening, the castle is open for tours Tuesday to Sunday in the summer, so you Resi super fans could plan a trip to get a guided tour of the castle that inspired the series’ latest iconic location.

Castle Dimitrescu Is Based On A Real Place

The Castle is a phenomenal achievement of architecture, and Castle Dimitrescu looks like a loving recreation. Fingers crossed that soon we can have a prod around the castle - and that we won’t be stalked by the Lady of the house on our tour.
