You might have heard about the Transfăgărăşan¸ a splendid mountain road in Romania. It was actually named by the famous TV show Top Gear as ”the most beautiful road in the world”. You might have also heard about the Transalpina, another mountain road that offers incredible views.
Well, now it’s time to hear about a new such mountain road opened in this country. It is called Transrarău, The Treasures Road, due to the natural treasures (various natural resources) that can be found in the area. The people in this area are also special, friendly and open, and it is always a pleasure to travel here. Of course, the name has a historical significance also. There is a lovely legend saying that one of the rulers of Moldavia, Petru Rareş, was hiding in 1541 with his family and his treasure in the mountains. They entered a cave to pray, and, while being there, a storm started and huge rocks fell, trapping the thieves.
The Rarău Mountains are some of the most beautiful mountains in Moldova, Romania, so we can say without a doubt that this road will provide each tourist a gorgeous landscape. Pietrele Doamnei is one of the main attractions in the area, praised by travelers and writers as well.
The road links Chiril and Valea Moldovei to Pojorâta. An important mention for the tourist: from Chiril to the cabin the speed limit is 30 km / h and large cars are not allowed.
