A bulgarian national mountain road, the mountains aren´t so spectacular at all there though.

I can strongly recommend the Kaunertaler Hochalpstraße in Tirol. Unfortunately, I have only been one time in the alpes, but that road was really an unforgetable experience. You can drive there up to 2750m by car.

Mountainous roads are definitely the most enjoyable roads to drive on!

Some stuff from the Julian Alps in Slovenia:

Vršič, the highest mountain pass in Slovenia (just 1611 m though, the highest road is almost 2000 m asl):


Russian Chapel by the road to Vršič:


Dying lion by the road to the Predel/Predil Pass (1156 m) with Italy:


Ljubelj/Loiblpass (1369 m) with Austria between Ljubljana and Klagenfurt (in the Karawank Mountains). It's one of the steepest mountain passes in the Alps, with up to 28% gradient. In 1945 a 1.57-km tunnel was built nearby (at 1068 m), and since 1967 the old pass has been closed for traffic. Nowadays it's popular for tobogganing (death ride ):

I love Vršič. I'll see if I find some pics, but I guess, there won't be road pics, just landscapes.

Me and some friends of mine went over the Passo dello Stelvio in the Italian alps, with 2758 meters one of the highest in Europe. Not for the faint-hearted!

Yeah, well it's the second highest pass in the Alps. The highest is Col de l'Iseran which is 2770 meters high. Is Veleta really a pass acessible for normal cars?

Thanks, CborG! I went from Engadin to Bormio, and so I used the Pass Umbrail (highest in Switzerland); on my great surprise the road was gravel. But ok, it's not very important. What I regret is not visiting the Passo dello Stelvio / Stilfser Joch, which I could've actually seen from there. It didn't pass my mind that it was actually just 3 km away, so no matter how slowly I drove, I should've reached it in a few minutes. Oh well, another time.
