Balea Lake

One of Romania’s amazing natural wonders, Bâlea Lake is a spectacular, must-see landmark. The glacier lake has been carved 2,034 metres (6,673 feet) up into the rugged stones of the Făgăraș Mountains.

Cabana Valea Sâmbetei trail

Located at the edge of the alpine gap, the chalet offers a spectacular view of the Sâmbeta Valley, with the Great Window and the famous Colț Bălăceni (also known as the Matterhorn of Romania) in the foreground. The explosion of colourful crocuses can be admired between April 20 and May 15, depending on weather conditions.

The Statue of Decebalus

The rock sculpture of Decebalus is a colossal carving of the face of Decebalus, the last king of Dacia, who fought against the Roman emperors Domitian and Trajan to preserve the independence of his country, which corresponds to present-day Romania. 

Făgăraș Mountains

Over 70 km long and 40 km wide, Fagaras, also known as Transylvania’s Alps, have hundreds of peaks above 2,000 meters and is the biggest alpine habitat in Romania.

Transfăgărăşan Road

The iconic Transfăgărășan or DN7C is a paved mountain road crossing the southern section of the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. It has national road ranking and is the second-highest paved road in the country after the Transalpina.

Râpa Roșie

Romania’s “Red Ravine” is a little-known natural wonder that bears a resemblance to the Grand Canyon. Over the last 60 million years, water has carved deep into the gravel, sandstone, and quartz of the plateau’s sublayer, creating unusual natural spiked towers and pyramid shapes in the red clay. 

Danube Delta

The waters of the Danube, which flow into the Black Sea, form the largest and best preserved of Europe’s deltas. The Danube delta hosts over 300 species of birds as well as 45 freshwater fish species in its numerous lakes and marshes.

Salina Turda

With over 2,000 years of history, highly preserved galleries, and a futuristic underground attraction, Romania’s Salina Turda is the largest salt mine museum in the world, and easily the most incredible.
