Have you ever dreamed about an adventure on motorcycle? Our tour is the best opportunity to experience the wonders of Romania, during four days full of adrenaline and relaxation in Transylvania.
Our perilous starts from Cluj – Napoca, the European Youth Capital for 2015. The road from Cluj leads us through the Somes Plateau to Turda, where we visit the local salt mine, the extraction of salt started in the Roman period and today have remained just a landmark, without any economical purposes.
We continue our way to the Trascau Mountains, stopping in Rimetea, the village where the Sun rises two times, unique in Romania in terms of architecture, with the specific white houses and green windows. We leave Rimetea, heading to Alba Iulia, the formal capital of Transylvania. In the Alba Carolina Citadel, the biggest from Romania, history is entwined with stories, legends and monuments that have a huge significance in the hearts of the Romanians.
After Alba Iulia, the next destination is going to be the amazing Transalpina Road, located at the highest altitude in Romania. We experience the driving on hairpins and from time to time we stop to admire the breathtaking landscapes. Transalpina has almost 2000 years, but nowadays is the road where you can feel the adrenaline and explore what Romania has to offer.
The biggest dam in Romania, Vidraru, is also located in this area, showing that the communist regime built impressive structures.
We leave behind Transalpina, heading to Curtea de Arges, first capital of Wallachia. In the Orthodox Cathedral are buried the members of the Romanian Royal family. Next stop after Curtea de Arges is another incredible mountain route, Transfagarasan, built during the communism as a strategically road, having a military purpose. This way leads us to the glacier lake, Balea, where during the winter season there is an ice hotel and an ice church.
The panoramic view is tremendous, crossing from South to North the Fagaras Mountains, Transfagarasan was considered to be one of the best roads in the world by Jeremy Clarkson, the presenter of the BBC TV show, Top Gear. We leave the mountains peaks behind us, heading to our next destination, city of Sibiu.
In Hermanstadt, the German name of Sibiu, we visit the old town of this Saxon city, which in the 14th century was a main trade center in Transylvania, the community being divided into 19 guilds. From Sibiu, we return to Cluj – Napoca, after a great journey we had.
At the end of this tour we discovered some of Romania’s wonder, places where you really feel the nature close to you, pace of the cities and the kindness of local people.
