Transfagarasan Road featured by Top Gear BBC as “the best driving road in the world” and heralded as one of the most spectaculars roads in the world by the users, is one of Romania’s top tourist attractions. It crosses the Fagaras Mountains, the highest mountain range in the Romanian Carpathians (sometimes known as the Transylvanian Alps), with the highest point of the road at 2042m.
From south to north, Transfagarasan passes the ruins of the medieval Poienari Citadel, then the Vidraru hydroelectric Dam and Balea Lake, before winding down to Cartisoara in Transylvania.
