Transfăgărăşan - The best route in the world? In july I will make a trip to Transfăgărăşan route, which is very close to Bucharest where I live, about 3 hours away. I will leave with my Citroen C4 valvetronic and a friend with VW Jetta Tdi. We will camp overnight at Balea Lac, and next day, hopefully, we'll be back in the capital of Romania, Bucharest. Transfagarasan or "Transfăgărăşan" in romanian language was called the best route in the world by Top Gear TV Show. If you're going to Black Sea, here in Romania or Bulgaria or you're in the country I will be more than pleased if you will join our little group.
