“Romania is one of the best countries in the world, it has it all!” This is what our geography teachers used to tell us in school. And by „all” they meant high, spectacular mountains, winding hills, endless plains, one gorgeous delta and 245 kilometers of beautiful shore at the Black Sea. This is the legacy we have from nature!

5 beautiful places to visit in Romania by car
Transfăgărășan – you wouldn’t want to miss the road that the guys from Top Gear consider to be “the best driving road în the world”. It crosses the highest, most spectacular mountains în Romania, Făgăraș Mountains. Its highest altitude is 2045 m and along its 91 km you will find breathtaking views at every step. It was built between 1970-1974 and was set to make the connection between Muntenia and Transylvania as a strategic military road. The story of how it was built it’s also interesting and sad and is waiting for you to discover it.
NB: you must know that Transfăgărășan is open only from July to November, but this period can be changed by the authorities if the weather asks it.
Delta Dunarii – it’s the spot where the Danube flows into the Black Sea and it’s the newest land in Romania. It began to form just 6000 years ago and it is considered to be the best preserved Delta in Europe. From the landscapes (you will be practically taking pictures of everyhing you see), to the fauna (3500 species), the vegetation (1700 species) and the food (fish-bades cuisuine) everything will be impressive there. You will visit this giant natural „museum” from a boat so you will leave your car in a parking lot and start the adventure through the canals.
