This road has the reputation of being one of the best roads in the world. It's all true! From start to finish, it's an epic drive. Just please do not think this road is only the little bit where 'Top Gear' went. It takes hours...More

Easily done on a day trip from Sibiu, I would strongly recommend renting a car for the day - ideally from gorgeous Sibiu - and driving the highway. Renting a car for a day in Romania isn't expensive and you'll have so much more flexibility....More

One of my dream was to visit this road. Is breathtaking.lucky us because there was snow and we had amazing view. After we saw Transfagarasan we went to see Transalpina and was better.

Breathtaking views! We didn't know what to expect besides the twisting and turning of the road. The views were spectacular! Its definitely a road like no other. It is dangerous if you are not paying attention. Just be on the look out for other cars...More

I'd rented a car for 6 days in Romania for self touring and drove the Transfagarasan Highway. Amazing! Beware of possible animal herds ! Sheep, cows and pigs - no kidding. Nice views along the way and plenty of places to pull off to safety...More

Not sure. You should be able to get to the dam and probably to near the beginning of the rising section of the highway. Looking up is not as impressive as looking down and the tunnel at the top with the lake will be missed.

The road is closed in part during the winter only when the snow is gone is it fully open so you should be good in June but remember no fuel stops in the 90KM length so fill up before you go. Enjoy the drive.

This road is absolutely worth to drive. Here is few sights on the road, like Poenari castle (to visit it you will spend about 2 hours), Vidraru dam is just a short stopover (30 min max), and after this you will reach the top... More
