You arrive in Bucharest. After check-in at the hotel you still have time for the first acquaintance with the city. You can take a walk through the old city center. Bucharest’s particular pride is the Parliament Building – the second biggest administrative building in the world (after the Pentagon) – the giant magnificent and ceremonial building.
Today we start our Carpathians trip. The route leads us along the mountain with serpentines and offers a magnificent view on Rucar – Bran Pass. In the evening we reach Bran (Bran). Here is the famous Bran Castle – Dracula’s Castle, where the head of the vampires should have been up to mischief. The barbecue outdoors is usually the highlight of the day.
A motorbike ride through the stunning landscape awaits us after visiting the bran-castle. Our path leads through the famous Transfagarasan – one of the most scenic roads in Europe. This high alpine mountain road crosses the Făgăra Mountains in the so-called Transylvanian Alps. The beautiful scenery, the tranquility and the natural colors that characterize your impressions of that day. In the late afternoon we reach Balea Lake. It is at the altitude of over 2000 meters above sea level and offers numerous walking possibilities.
Today we drive through the narrow Olt Valley and arrive in Sibiu in the evening. Founded by the German settlers, Sibiu is still the center of the “Saxons” – also in the architecture is Sibiu reminiscent of old German cities. Even the signposts and the tourist information.
On this day, we can relax and explore Sibiu. During a walk through the city center, you get the impression of the European Cultural Capital in 2007 – you will see a large and a small city ring, the Bridge of Lies and the Evangelical Cathedral and the so-called lower town with the city wall.
Today we get to know panoramic street “Transalpina”, which, as they say, is very close to the sky. “Road of the King” was opened in 1939 and was thoroughly renovated in recent years, so that nothing distracts you from driving pleasure.
On this day we drive towards Romanian capital. Decorated villages left and right attract your attention. Especially interesting are the Black Hills – a scenic peculiarity in the southern part of the country.
On this day, our program comes to its end. After breakfast you set off to return home. You will take home unforgettable memories and the feeling of having experienced something special.
Mobile phone coverage is good in most parts of Romania but mountainous and remote areas may have patchy coverage. Be sure to activate global roaming on your phone before leaving home if you wish to use your mobile.
