Transfagarasan Highway was built between 1970 and 1974, with the army's logistical support, the aim being to connect the historical provinces of Transylvania and Walachia on a previously inaccessible route. The construction has involved great sacrifice, and only Ceausescu's immeasurable ambition made the task possible. The project's cost to the country was high, especially that many lives were lost during its achievement. Now, the highway is considered one of the most spectacular in Europe, with corners that would make it the greatest motorsport circuit in the World.
Curtea de Argeș is the first capital of Wallachia, Romania's southern region, and it is a truly charming place, full of history and surrounded by a curious legend. The main attraction of the town is the Curtea de Argeș Monastery, built between 1515 and 1517. It is one of the most famous architectural monuments in Wallachia, and it is part of Romania's list of historical monuments. During the rule of Carol I, the cathedral was turned into a necropolis for the Romanian Royal Family.
After Curtea de Arges you will drive to Bucharest.
