Transfagarasan Road

The most crooked and challenging of Europe's roads for motorcyclists is called the Transfaragasan (Transfagarasan Pass – 2042m above sea level). Built between 1970 and 1974 as a military route, by communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu (after the Soviet invasion of Cehoslovakia in 1968) it snakes up the tallest peaks of the Carpathians.

Due to the high altitude the road is open only 3 months per year and you can find walls of snow on the side of the road even in July.

Jeremy Clarkson at Top Gear, BBC, reffered to Transfagarasan as The Best Road in The World!
