A great road to pass the Romanian mountains. The kids were very impressed by the views, Poienari fortress, Vidraru dam and the serpentine road up over the top of the world.

it is one of the most beautiful road from Romania, but probably I would never go again because of the number of people who are visiting the place. It is very crowded and you should take into consideration an hour for getting the top on the last 1km and parking (especially in weekend). So my recommendation go there when the... More

Nice road to have a nice weekend! Your car should be in Optimus condition to make this road specially the breaks! If you planning to stay make a reservation, be patient and careful some drivers can make you crazy doing improper things!

We had a spectacular day driving up (and down!) the Transfagarasan Highway. We happened to be there on a day when the Tour of Sibiu bicycle race was finishing up at the top, and there were many bicyclists riding up to watch the finish. We opted to head down before it got too congested and they closed the road, but... More

They call it one of the best roads in the world and only if you drive all the way you can understand why. The panoramic views that you can see during the trip and once arrived at Bâlea Lake are unique, breathtaking. The ideal time to go there is the summer time, so from June to September, when there is... More

As the ones from Top Gear said (and so it is) the most beautiful road in the world. Large part of the year the road is closed so I recommend you go in summer, because otherwise you risk to fiind it closed. The road is at hi altitude and is often covered in snow. In the area you can also... More

As once Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear called it ”The best road in the world" , to me this is a breath-taking scenic road. Is it worth driving it , or even better riding it. It is spectacular and amazing, crossing the Transylvanian Alps. Worth taking your time and allow 5-6 hours to make multiple stops, hike the Balea Waterfall,... More

Great views, great road! The twists and bends are simply wonderful! The Vidraru Lake and dam is amazing my engineering and beauty. Balea Waterfall is also very beautiful and wild!
