Full description
Your journey starts in the early morning in Bucharest, from where you will head northwards to the former capital of the medieval Wallachian principality, Curtea de Arges. Situated in a picturesque landscape, this is one of the most historically significant places in Romania. Curtea de Arges is the home of an old Princely Court dating back to the 14th century and has a famous monastery, with a very interesting yet gruesome legend.

After this visit, climb your way toward the Carpathian Mountains, stopping by to admire the Vidraru Dam, one of the largest in Romania, followed by a memorable ride along the picturesque Transfagarasan, declared by Top Gear as the best road in the world.

Built high up in the Fagaras Mountains, this road stretches for 100 km, offering breathtaking views. You can make stops on the way to admire the scenery, take photos, and simply enjoy the strong and healthy mountain air before heading back to Bucharest, which you will reach in the evening.
