  • One of the best places to visit in Romania if you love high mountains. Make sure you are phisically prepared and have the right gear, as weather can change rapidly, even in summer. In winter, go only after a thorough preparation.
  • Best place
  • Go cycling through the Făgăraş 's, it is as though you are in Romania. I've been there three times and like I'll be back!! Unfortunately happens that even in the middle of May it snow you pass.
