The area of Mărginimea Sibiului
Starting from our equestrian center you can visit the little town Sălişte and then, other picturesque villages in the area Tilişca, Rod, Poiana Sibiului and Jina…The road goes on, over the mountains, and it continues with the famous Transalpina, the highest road in Romania.
Also known as the King’s Road, Transalpina makes the connection between two geographical areas: Transylvania and Oltenia (former Wallachia). Located at more than 2000 m altitude, Transalpina is the highest road in Romania that can be crossed by car.
There are so many stories about this road: it is said that is was built by Romans and, later on, it was used by the Romanians in these areas taking their flocks of sheep South. The Germans cobbled it during WWI and, between the two world wars, it was rebuilt and inaugurated by King Carol II of Romania. The road starts in Jina, it climbs down for about 7 km till Sugag and then it continues till Ranca and Novaci.
In Marginimea Sibiului there are so many great sites to visit: Răşinari, Sălişte, the ski resort Păltiniş, Gura Râului but also some former Saxon towns like Cisnădioara and Cisnădie.
