ABOUT THE TRANSFAGARASAN HIGHWAY IN ROMANIA

DRIVING ROMANIAN HIGH ROADS

In 2009 the widely popular British TV program TopGear ditched the famed Stelvio Pass as "the greatest driving road in the world" for the TransFagarasan in Romania.

 

What they didn't test was the neighbouring TransAlpina Highway. The road runs parallel to the famous TransFagarasan, but is often ignored since the British tv program TopGear missed out on promoting the drive when they have been in the region. The reason was probably that the road has still been asphalted while they did their shooting.

Both, the TransFagarasan Highway and the TransAlpina Highway clearly deserve a high ranking spot among the the best driving roads in Europe, if not the world.
