Top Gear came to Romania and deemed the Transfagarsan Highway the best road in the world. The road is an incredible mountain pass that is only open about two months of the year because of harsh weather. We didn't get the same privileges as the Top Gear guys by driving the best cars in the world and having the road all to ourselves, but it really was a sweet experience. Gorgeous views and a fun drive in the Carpathian Mountains. We had both really wanted to do this for a long time and we're so glad we were here when it's open. Man, we love Romania!
^^^at the top of the mountain is a charming lake with a bunch of touristy things^^^
And if you have no idea what I'm talking about with Top Gear, here is the clip from it. For some great views and the driving stuff, start at 3:40.
