Transfagarasan pass 01


This road, also known as Ceausescu’s Folly, is covered with snow between late October and late June and usually it is closed during this period, meaning that it is available only during a few summer months, to delight the eye with outstanding landscapes, that Romania usually meets its visitors. Depending on the weather, it may remain open until as late as November. It may also be closed, at times, because of weather conditions (it occasionally snows even in August). There are signs at the town of Curtea de Argeş and the village of Cartisoara that provide information on the passage. Check the weather forecast on the day you head for the Transfagarasan highway, as it is closed in bad weather. Don’t plan a trip in winter as the highway is closed! Generally speaking it is safe to plan your trip between mid June and mid September. The road that traverses the Carpathian Mountains will send chill down your spine, especially when you reach the top.
