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

Traveling up to this road famously built by the last Dictator of the country of Romania for military movements was total surprise of beautiful scenery with views of majestic vistas at each level up the road. I would recommend this as a top tourist attraction when visiting the state of ARGES

You have to visit here if you go to Romania. The drive to the top (check if the whole road is open as it closes some months, but then you can get a cable car to the top) is absolutely breath-taking and when you reach Balea Lake it is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the world. We... More

Perfect for driving holidays, a Mecca for motorbike Riders since Jeremy Clarkson at Top Gear said it is the Best in The World. Avoid weekends or ride it early in the morning to stay away from crowds,

So once we decided on Romania, I knew I had to drive this famous route. And it did not disappoint. The higher and higher we drive, I wondered if we would just drive over the top of the mountain or if we would eventually go through a tunnel. Well, we found the tunnel. On the upslope side we saw a... More

My boyfriend and I did this drive in late October. The road is amazing. The drive there is also so beautiful and breathtaking. This is a must do - however pick your day wisely! We went on a day that was slightly overcast and we were aware this could hinder our views (especially being in the mountains) but it was... More

This by far was the best part of our Romania tour, driving in the snow to the Balea Lake - Simply Stunning
