The Transfagarasan road connects the Wallachia and Transylvania regions and starts from the village of Bascov near Pitesti.

This road crosses the north-south axis of the Fagaras Mountains, the highest mountain range in Romania, and is considered one of the world’s most stunning high roads. It used to be ranked as the top alpine road in Romania until the construction of the Transalpina Road. The Tunnel of Balea Lac is the highest point of the Transfagarasan road, reaching an altitude of 2,042 meters.
