After the canon you will have a picnic in the middle of the forest.Following the relaxation evening in the nature  you will enjoy the beauty of Transfagarasan highway also known as Ceaușescu's Folly - a paved mountain road crossing the southern section of the Carpathian Mountains of Romaniain, a road that crosses the mountains at over 2.000 m, with a breathtaking scenery.
