The Transfăgărăşan Rd (the 7C) is Romania’s highest asphalted road. Driving its hairpin bends is a white-knuckle adventure: along some stretches, you're hemmed in by sharp cliffs and forest. After a few twists and turns, these abruptly give way to breathtaking mountain views. The two-lane 'road to the clouds' sometimes has the narrowest of shoulders separating it from the edge of a cliff. Voted by TV's Top Gear as the world's best road, it provides an unforgettable experience behind the wheel.

The Poienari Citadel was once a powerful fortress guarding entry to a strategic pass linking Wallachia with Transylvania.
