Long drive, beautiful views. The kids loved to stop on the way in the ponds and the water streams. Next time I will take a motel on the road it self.

You need to see it...is breathtaking!!! You can do it by car (not a very old one), by motorcycle or by bicycle (for the ones which are in shape). I really recommend to view it...and on the pick, you can spend several days on tracks.

This drive up and over the Carpathian Mountains is a spectacular piece of road construction. Ceaușescu's Folly was built in order that tanks could be moved quickly should Russia decide to invade Romania. You leave the flat plains of the valleys and climb up through...More

The experience was one of a kind, very adventurous and demanding, for the car especially. We took road from north and it's best to start that way in our opinion, cause after the dam on the lake Vidraru the road is less spectacular, and we...More

The road is closed in part during the winter only when the snow is gone is it fully open so you should be good in June but remember no fuel stops in the 90KM length so fill up before you go. Enjoy the drive.

This road is absolutely worth to drive. Here is few sights on the road, like Poenari castle (to visit it you will spend about 2 hours), Vidraru dam is just a short stopover (30 min max), and after this you will reach the top... More
