Transfagarasan Highway, Romania - 3 sizes
Twisting and turning throughout this photograph is the Transfagarasan Highway, a highway built between 1970 and 1974. At the time of construction, the Transfagarasan Highway was used as a military roadway, allowing easy access across the mountains in the event of a Soviet Union invasion. Contemporarily, the highway and adjacent hiking paths are seen as leisure destinations, allowing visitors to move throughout and explore the Carpathian Mountains.
