Favorite thing: Carpathians Mountains starts in the Danube, near Bratislava (Slovakia). Surrounds Transcarpathia and Transilvania with a big semi-circle, and ends another time at the Danube, near Orçova (Romania). They reach its high point in Transylvania (2.655 m)
The Transfagaras is one of the highest road in Europe. The road, narrow, with a high escarpment, is really beautiful. The landscape changes as the car rises the mountain, and when you arrive to the top, trees have almost disappeared.
Fondest memory: When you stop before to cross the tunnel (in the top of the road), the view of this way is wonderful.
When you arrive to the peak of the Fagaras, you can stop the car in a zone that has been prepared as a parking. When you leave the car, the inmensity of the mountains won't let you indifferent.
Fondest memory: In August, it was snow in some nooks already, and the mist, so common in the highs, gave a winter atmosphere to the landscape.
