Road trip routes
Sibiu - Rasinari - Paltinis
tarmac: fair condition
50 - 60 km/h
The first part of the road crosses a dense forest on the outskirts of Sibiu. Here you can visit the beautiful Village museum Astra. The road is a straight line for several kilometers without large differences in level. Then after you cross the picturesque village of Rasinari you enter the valley of the river Streaza. From here the road starts to climb slightly and landscape changes. We are entering an area with mountain aspect you will soon find the first hairpin curve.
In a few kilometers, the road climbs quickly to 1000m in altitude. From here the trees starts to be more and more scattered and slowly landscape changes: we, now have wide views towards the mountains and towards Sibiu. The last few kilometers before Paltinis, the road crosses a plateau and the road has wide curves and long straight lines. Paltinis resort is spread over a few kilometers on the road, so be carefull because you will find many tourists walking on the roadside.
