From Brasov we’ll do some take some great off road tracks to Bran, where we’ll visit the Castle of Count Dracula.

Transylvania at it’s best

Wednesday Aug 22nd Sinaia – Sambata 310 kms

If you love cars and driving -and of course you do- this will be the best stage of all, and maybe one of the reasons why you signed up for this adventure. Because we’ll drive through one of the best roads around to world. An unforgattable, unbelievebly amazing road that crosses the Carpathians from one side to the other. During the constructions, a lot of workers lost their lifes, but the creation of the communist dictator Chaechescu had to be completed, and so he did in order to be remembered as the man who built the impossible road across the Carpathians. The result is this masterpiece, a road that can’t be compared to any other in the world. Crazy corners, amazing views and an indescribable experience that you’ll never forget for sure. End of the stage we’ll be in Sambata, next to the most important ortodox monestry in the country.
