Romania: Transfagarasan

Transfăgărășan is one of the most iconic (and unpronounceable) roads in the world - especially for motorcyclists. Crossing the Făgărăș part of the Carpathian mountains this patch of tarmac towers some 2000 meters above the sea.

While you may have seen pictures of its iconic serpentines, the bits before and after those bends are well worth a stop, too.
