Road trip on Transfagarasan Highway

Bogdan With: Bogdan 3
Hidden in a valley between 2.000m high mountains crests lies the 'best road in the world' according to Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear: the Transfagarasan Highway! On its highest spot you can admire truly unique views and see the plains of Transylvania in the distance. But on our way there we will have a roadtrip and see other Romanian sights along the way!


Moments to expect

  • Curtea de Arges Monastery

    Curtea de Arges Monastery

    The construction of this splendid Byzantine monastery with Moorish (Arab) influences began in 1514 on the site of a church built by the Wallachian ruler Vlad Dracul (father of Vlad the Impaler) destroyed by a strong earthquake 50 years before. Its construction faced many challenges giving birth to many legends, including a very famous one which became a Romanian saying - about Manole's wife. I'll tell you all about it :)

    This magnificent road between the mountains has a story of its own: it was built during the communist regime for a special purpose using dynamite and many other resources. While you admire the splendid views I will tell you its history
