I will post some road tourism videos from Romania on this thread. The movies show real-time driving on some roads, and I put some pictures also and explanations during the video about the area we go through and the inhabited places on the way. Enjoy!

The first video shows DN57 between Orsova and Moldova Veche, a very nice drive through the Iron Gates Gorges of Danube:

Road tourism in the Subcarpathians hills, we travel on secondary roads between Curtea de Arges and Calimanesti. The road is in bad state, with 2 unpaved sections, but goes through some very nice hilly landscape. If modernized, it could serve as an alternative, at least for small cars, for the DN7 over the infamous Black Hill.

A nice morning drive between Hateg and Deva, on DN66 and DN7. I integrated some pics from Hateg (+region), Hunedoara (the spectacular Corvin Castle) and Deva during the video. Enjoy!

A road that I like a lot, as we go over 6 hills in just 50km and we visit the historical towns of Campulung, Curtea de Arges (UNESCO World Heritage) and also the roman fortress of Jidova in between, with photos integrated in the video. Enjoy!

DN2G, through the hills west of Bacau. It is a nice drive, on a relatively good quality road, through nice landscape. At the end of the video I put some photos from Bacau.

P.S. I would be glad if you could also leave a feedback on youtube (a like, comment or subscribe would help me a lot).

A nice drive in Gorj County (Romania), visiting the oldest wallachian monastery (Tismana). The good combination between forrested and wide-open areas, no very long villages and nice views of the Valcan Mountains are good ingredients for a nice drive.

A nice drive in the Baragan Plains, through a peaceful rural area, on a road offering wide views of the landscape around. We visit the spa town of Amara and the very nice historical town center of Buzau.

A drive in West Romania, in the historical province of Banat, on the major route DN6, from Lugoj to Caransebes. The historical centers from Lugoj and Caransebes are well worth a stop if you are travelling through this nice area.

The next trip brings us from Blaj to Tarnaveni, another nice town in Transylvania, on secondary roads through Tarnava Mica Valley. The area is very interesting, as we will drive through nice landscapes, with vineyards and historical spots, like The Bethlen Castle in Cetatea de Balta (some pics included in the video). Enjoy!

Being in the area, we couldn't miss a visit to Sighisoara, a fairytale medieval town, one of the best preserved in Eastern Europe.

P.S. If you find the videos useful, please subscribe to the youtube channel. It would help me a lot in my mission to show you the areas where I travel.

We move to Oltenia region for the next road tourism video, featuring DN67 through the hills between Motru and Drobeta Turnu Severin. At the end, we visit Drobeta Turnu Severin, a town situated on the bench of The Danube, where the famous roman bridge built by Appolodor from Damascus once stood. Enjoy!

I welcome you to a wonderful drive through a part of The Iron Gates Gorges and Cerna Valley. The landscape is very nice, and the road has a lot of viaducts and tunnels, as it closely follows The Danube. Enjoy!

A nice drive in the border area between the historical provinces of Transylvania and Banat. We travel on DN68 through The Iron Gates of Transylvania Pass (699m) and visit the former capital of Dacia Province from The Roman Empire, Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa. Enjoy!
