Transfagarasan offers the amazing driving experience, connecting the south of Romania with Transylvania, going straight across the massive Fagaras Mountains through five tunnels and winding roads that needed 6,500 tons of dynamite to be built. Transfagarasan is 90 km long and reaches an altitude of 2,042 meters, a veritable road from the clouds, but with a history that has much to do with the communist regime and its obsession with oversized projects.
One of the first attractions as you drive from the south is Vidraru Lake, Another top attraction from the Transfagarasan is Balea Lake, an iconic glacial lake located at an altitude of 2,034 meters, close to the highest point of the road.
