Transfărgărășan, Romania 🇷🇴 . This road trip is one of the most beautiful I've done during the last 7 months traveling in Europe. The weather was definitely not the best, so the pictures are not that good, but just Google "Transfagarasan" and look how it looks like in a sunny day. The Transfăgărășan is a paved mountain road crossing the southern section of the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. The road, built in the early 1970s as a strategic military route, connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia. It was constructed between 1970 and 1974 during the rule of Nicolae Ceaușescu as a response to the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union. Ceaușescu wanted to ensure quick military access across the mountains in case of a Soviet invasion. At the time, Romania already had several strategic mountain passes through the Southern Carpathians. These passes, however, were mainly through river valleys, and would be easy for the Soviets to block and attack. Ceauşescu therefore ordered the construction of a road across the Făgăraş Mountains, which divide northwestern and southern Romania. Built mainly by military forces, the road had a high financial and human cost. Work was carried out in an alpine climate, at an elevation of 2,000 metres, using roughly six million kilograms of dynamite, and employing junior military personnel who were untrained in blasting techniques. Many workers died; official records state that only 40 soldiers lost their lives, but unofficial estimates by workers put the number in the hundreds. The Transfăgărășan was featured in a segment of the British TV show Top Gear, in the first episode of Series 14. Host Jeremy Clarkson proclaimed that the Transfăgărășan was "the best road in the world". . Pic 1-4: The Transfăgărășan. Pic 5: The Vidraru dam. Pic 6: The Vidraru river. Video 1: The Transfăgărășan.

The Prometheus statue located near the Vidraru Dam, Romania, holding a flash of lightning to symbolise electricity. The dam was completed in 1966 by the Socialist Republic of Romania and was the fifth largest in Europe at the time of construction.

Bulgaria and Romania have been 👌. Definitely worth visiting by road as their respective landscapes are so impressive.

Hello petit résumé du jour 16. Aujourd'hui nous ne passons pas de frontières, nous restons tout du long en Roumanie. Du coup on se permet de se lever un peu plus tard (6h30 😆). Nous prenons la route du Transfagarasant qui traverse la plus haute chaîne de montagne de Roumanie. Cette route est juste magnifique, de part la beauté de son panorama. Sur cette route nous nous sommes arrêté plusieurs fois pour voir : le lac et le barrage Vidraru ainsi que le lac Balea se trouvant entre 2 sommets.🗻 Nous avons du faire face à de nombreux bouchons malheureusement, le dimanche tout les locaux étaient de sortie pour pic-niquer au bord de cette route étant l'une des plus belle du monde. Nous, n'ayant pas de monnai local nous avons du attendre d'arriver a la ville de Sibiu, qui se trouve a la fin de cette route. Vu l'heure, nous avons pas cherché et nous nous sommes vite rabattu sur un simple Mac do 😂. Nous avons ensuite fait une halte au ravin rouge, une réserve géologique offrant une version miniature des canyons de l'ouest américain. Vers la fin de l'assention un des 3 pirates a du rebrousser chemin sur une partie difficile pour cause de vertige. Les 2 autres ont continué pour lui ramener un beau panorama. 🖼️ Pour finir nous sommes rentré au bivouac ou les locaux nous attendaient avec des combats en amures ancienne et des danses traditionnelles de leur pays. #roumanie #transfargarasan #vidraru #sibiu #ravinrouge #europraid2018

Wolraad Woltemade se naam is sinoniem met onbaatsugtige opoffering vir jou medemens en dapperheid. Vandag het ons bietjie van daai dapperheid gebruik gemaak toe ons weereens die Transfăgărăşan moes oorsteek maar dié keer terwyl die reën aan die eenkant van die berg ons verwelkom het en digte mis aan die anderkant. Ons het ook na Vlad III (Vlad Dracula of Vlad the Impaler) se regte kasteel toe gery maar het nie kans gesien vir die 1480 trappe nie so hier is 'n paar internet fotos. Vanaand spandeer ons die nag in Sibiu waar jy die ou Transsilvaanse (Transylvanian) en kommunistiese invloed op die stad nog kan sien. #valhalla #valhalla1652 #leeflegendaries #tour #travel #romania #sibiu #transylvania #transfargarasan #bmw #motorcycle
The reason I came to Romania #bmw #motorcycle #romania #transfargarasan #travel #tour
Tydens die vroeë 1700s het Kaptein Jan van Hunks 'n pyp rook kompetisie teen die duiwel homself gewen op, wat vandag bekend staan as, Duiwel's Piek. As die wolke swaar oor Tafelberg hang sê die Kapenaars nog steeds "Ou van Hunks en die duiwel stook weer". Daar is egter 'n ander verhaal deur die skrywer Bram Stoker oor Count Dracula maar die regte Dracula (Vlad III, Vlad Dracula of beter bekend as Vlad the Impaler) was dalk meer nader aan die regte duiwel en mens kan steeds vandag in sy tuis dorp van Bran (waar sy kasteel staan) en in die Făgăraş berge sy "rook" sien. Veral op die Transfăgărășan highway waar die reuk van jou motorfiets se ABS baie sterk deurkom aan die einde as jy genoeg mielies gegooi het (wat ons natuurlik gedoen het) #valhalla #valhalla1652 #leeflegendaries #tour #travel #romania #transfargarasan #bmw #motorcycle
It's almost tough to keep up with the progress we're making at the moment. Yesterday we woke up in Romania, drove the stunning Transfargarasan Highway, got a new tyre in a tiny Romanian town, crossed the border into Bulgaria and finished our day in the beautiful town of Veliko Turnovo. Eastern Europe has some spectacular landscapes! #MongolRally #MongolRally2018 #Romania #Bulgaria #Transfargarasan #VelikoTarnovo #StandAndDeliver2018 #travel
A major highlight from this trip was driving the Transfagarasan road deep in the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, Romania. That little red cable car was nothing more than a tin box though. Glad @dacslu didn’t make me ride it up to the top of the mountains 🤣⛰🤯🌲🙃 ☁️ #romania 🇹🇩 #translyvania #transfargarasanroad #transfargarasan #transfargarasanhighway #lpfanphoto #lonelyplanet #travelonandon

Love this photo! Other than the stunning landscape, the road reminds me of my favourite topic. Success. This is how it looks like with all its peaks and valleys.. Enjoy every moment!
I certainly didn’t expect to see someone on a Penny-Farthing so high up, but Transylvania is full of many surprises. #romania #transylvania #travel #tourism #cycling #transfargarasan #driving #bmw #x1 #photography #videooftheday #scenery #nature #mountains
