The route starts in near city Banska Bystrica then is goes north through Donovaly pass around 900m above sea level (mountain resort) with a nice corners on good quality tarmac, follows to city Ruzomberok then around city Dolny Kubin - nice landscape wives and also some nice corners. I have stopped at village Oravsky Podzámok where is beautiful Oravsky zámok (castle) and good places to have a coffe with cake. In Oravsky Podzamok turned back south towards Dolny Kubin where I turned to Parnica (they made fantastic sheep cheese here) - Kralovany. On this part of the trip road goes near the river through a beautiful valley with a light traffic. On your way back you will pass again Donovaly a return back to Banská Bystrica.
Long - all day long trip via rural roads through beautifull parts of middle Slovakia. Best part starts from Velky Krtis, youll enjoy lot of curves, especially Vernar area.
The Transfăgărăşan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraş) or DN7C is the highest (~2200m) and most dramatic paved road in Romania. Built as a strategic military route by Nicolae Ceauşescu, the 110 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathian Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Piteşti.
