Transfagarasan – World’s Best Road Trip in Romania

The Transfagarasan is one of the most famous roads in Romania, and even in Europe and rest of the world, due to the height at which it was built, beautiful landscapes and many switchbacks.

Built between 1970-1974 on the personal orders of communist politician Nicolae Ceausescu, the highway stretches some 150km, passing over the Fagaras mountains in Transylvania, Romania.

Salina Turda – Epic Underground Amusement Park in Former Salt Mine

A salt mine in general may sound boring, but Salina Turda in Cluj-Napoca, Romania is really an awesome attraction.

Salina Turda is a centuries-old salt mine in Romania that has been converted into an underground tourist attraction where visitors can go boating on an underground lake, attend a concert in a 180-seat amphitheater, and ride a carousel deep within a salt cavern. There is even a museum, and health spa. It has been visited by over 2 million tourists, mostly Romanians, for health reasons and historical value.
