Transalpina is the highest road in Romania, crossing the Parâng Mountains, reaching the maximum altitude (2145 m) in Urdele Pass. Although it is a national road, it has never been paved by 2009. Some sources say it was built by the Romans during the Dacian wars, a legend says it was built by the locals at the end of the 18th century, the beginning of the nineteenth century, while other sources claim that it was built and paved by the Germans during the First World War. It is also mentioned about some mountain trail, "The Devil's Path", which the shepherds crossed the mountains with the flocks of sheep in Wallachia.

It is known that in 1731 the Austrian authorities wanted to build a transcarpathian road, in 1930 and King Carol II wanted a strategic road between Wallachia and Transylvania. Thus he paved the way, which he inaugurated in 1939.

The royal family was present at the festivity, including the future King Michael I. The road was rebuilt by the Germans in the Second World War, and then it was forgotten! Slowly it has become an inaccessible road for cars. Road rehabilitation started in 2009 and Transalpina opened on August 15, 2015. It has a length of 148.2 km, crosses five protected areas, is the site of motoring and cycling competitions but is closed during winter the avalanche hazard
