Transfagarasan 1 Day Trip
Transfagarasan Road also named the Transylvanian Alps was a very nice place to visit for one weekend day, we saw many places, such as: Curtea de Arges Monastery, Poenari Citadel- famous thanks to Dracula's Legend, Vidraru Lake, Balea Lake, beautiful Fagaras Mountains views. The road reaches his highest point of 2034 m at the Balea Lake, after passing through Romania's longest road tunnel, the Capra Tunnel. Everybody should visit this unique road, which is one of the highest ones in Romania! We had the trip organized and included : transport from Bucharest , English speaking guide. We took a lot of pictures to remember the places we liked the most! Visit Transfagarasan!
