Transalpina, The Highest Road In Romania

The road is almost ready and hundreds of tourists have already tried driving it. Thus, Transalpina becomes the highest road in Romania, having a maximum altitude of 2,145 meters, being also an alternative to the busy traffic in Olt Valley.

The works will be over in the first quarter of next year, when the road is to be officially inaugurated.
