This route is very beautiful..amazing views indeed..but you have to get to top part to enjoy the views. And it's a long way to that from the nearest town..and even more from any good attraction ! So I don't think it's worth to go there...More

Drove from Curtea de Arges to about half way (the second half only opens after around mid-end June each year). The first bit was full of tourists parked and Romanians having picnics on the side of the road. The second bit was less busy, but...More

The road was as beautiful as anticipated. It was full of hairpin bends and waterfalls at every turn almost. Loved the little shop set ups at every major waterfall selling tourist trinkets and souvenirs for cheap prices - made the whole experience more colorful and...More

A long route through the mountains makes this a good journey for seeing Romania. Meant to be one of the 'best in the world'.

While the road was not opened through to Sibiu, it was a beautiful drive. We also hiked in the area. The waterfalls were beautiful.

Hello ! 2nd July I'm planning on driving from the north to the south (from Sibiu to Bucharest) with my family. Do you know if it will be open? Also, we are kind of scared because we've heard it is dangerous and we might find closures or snow in the way. Do you have any recommendations for amateurs drivers in this kind of roads ? Thank you very much !!!
