Transfagarasan Scenic Road – spooky Tunnels, endless Twists

Ready for an adrenaline shot? The Transfagarasan has it ready for you!

The Transfagarasan scenic road

One of the most spectacular roads in the world, the Transfagarasan is 150 km long and runs trough the spectacular, rocky Fagaras mountains, the highest mountains in Romania with the Moldoveanu peak reaching 2544 meters.  Reaching 2042 m near Lake Balea,  the Transfagarasan  is the second-highest paved road in the country after Transalpina, the other scenic road in the Parang Mountains which goes up to 2145 m.

New corona pandemic circumstances may inspire especially Europeans to place the Transfagarasan Scenic Road on the 2020 summer holiday map; it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a perfect holiday, impressive views and nature close by all these by also observing social distancing!
