Nicknamed “The Road in The Clouds” and “The Great Serpent” or “The Dragon” and fondly called “Manole’s Dream”, but appreciated as the most beautiful high-altitude road in the world, enjoying a well-deserved celebrity, the Transfăgărășan Pass is undoubtedly among the most popular high-altitude asphalt routes. And it deserves to be loved for the continuous spectacle it provides, but also for the history, legends, and stories surrounding it.
Originally it was supposed to be just a forest road. The invasion of the Soviet troops in Czechoslovakia and the autonomy from the USSR, on which Ceaușescu’s popularity was based, turned it into a road of strategic importance, which would connect Muntenia with Transylvania and which would allow troops to transit this corridor, within a maximum of 12 hours.
The slope of the serpentines is 6% and only in a few places, exceptionally, it exceeds 8%. The minimum radius of the curves is 25 meters and 15 meters for serpentines. The northern segment is 35.1 kilometers long. It starts at the Sibiu-Făgăraș national road, through Cârțișoara, up to Bâlea Lac. The tunnel crosses the ridge of Făgăraș between Capra and Paltinul Peaks, between 2025 and 2042 meters altitude, and is 887 meters long.
