Transalpina is the Romanian road situated at the highest altitude, with the peak altitude it reaches being 2,145 meters. It connects the regions of Oltenia and Transylvania, crossing an incredible landscape, and will provide an alternative to the overcrowded Olt Valley road.It starts in Sebes, near Alba Iulia, goes through mountain passes and valley, reaches Bengesti in Gorj County, then ends near Ramnicu Valcea. Although it is 60 km longer than the existing road that crosses the Olt Valley, it delights motorists with scenic landscapes, forests, lakes and reservoirs.The first road to follow this route was built more than 2,000 years ago, by the Roman conquerors of Dacia. In 1930, it was restored and paved during the reign of King Carol II. Nowadays, its reconstruction sparked controversies, because of the very high cost: no less than 4 million euros per km.

the broken sign gives an anchor to a scene with a great deal of perspective.

Si aici remarc culorile. In rest, frumusetea naturala ne face sa uitam de panoul prabusit sau de alte lipsuri datorate firii noastre neglijente de balcanici.
