I drove the Transfagarasan Highway from Bucharest through to Brasov. (the north bound route) It is completely achievable to do this in one day. We departed from Bucharest at roughly 11am and arrived into Brasov at 8pm with some stops along the way for lunch, scenic shots and to look around. I hired a car through Klasswagon who had reasonable... More

I was there when I was a child and did not remember much about it, except that my father stopped a few times for the car to cooldown. But we are talking about Comunism times and old Dacias. I have been there last summer (2016) and I was impressed by the views. It is an amazing road that needs to... More

The road and landscape are wonderful. The road on both side of the mountain are beautiful. On summer holiday could be very crowded, especially on weekends and on top. So better avoid august trip. In the winter the road is closed but you could reach the top with cabin.

This was a lovely area to go away for a night or two, and then take our time driving home via the Highway. We made plenty of little stops, got stopped by cattle, and then sheep, in the road. The lakes at the top of the road are stunning, but a lot busier than I care for, and we did... More

Brilliant drive there is countless opportunities to stop by the side admire the scenery and the road, There is a lack of shops on the mountain so eating options are extremely limited.

I enjoy outdoors and adventures and loved every moment of my drive on this twisty turny highway. It is a pretty safe drive. Though one must pay attention all the time. The views are breathtaking (and this was October with grass turning brown). I plan to go back again during a summer visit. There is not much to do --... More
