    What to Expect
    The Transfagarasan mountain road (or national road 7C) is one of the most spectacular roads in the world. Located in Romania, it runs trough the Fagaras mountains and  has more tunnels and viaducts then any other road in Romania.

    Initially a modest wooden building, skilled stone masons from France who built true Gothic construction later known as the The Cistercian Abbey from Cârţa. In fact, the new church played an inspirational role in the architecture of the future fortified churches from Transylvania. In spite of the decay, the monument has kept its impressive architecture: capitals, keystones, windows and consoles and even the 15th century western portal. Today the church is frequented by the evangelical community of Cârţa.

    Via the Transfăgărăşan road through a breathtakingly majestic landscape, Balea area is perfect as a start-up point for various mountain trails in the Făgăraş Mountains, where you can enjoy the diversity of its flora and fauna. The Bâlea area is crossed by the Bâlea River which forms a picturesque waterfall. The journey to Balea Lake will most certainly be one to remember!

    The Brukenthal is a stately palace from 1788, formerly used as the summer residence of Transylvanian Baron Samuel von Brukenthal. Visitors to the historic Brukenthal Palace can enjoy the Baroque architecture and the large landscaped palace park.

    Please note:

    This trip can be booked also during the winter season, excepting the hiking part from Balea Waterfall to Balea Lake (to get to Balea Lake it is necessary to take the cable car).
