The Transfagarasan Highway was built between 1970 and 1974. It was Ceausescu’s way of making a safe passage through the Fagaras Mountains. His main concern was a Soviet invasion. So, he wanted his people to be prepared. Roughly around 6 millions kilograms o dynamite was used. Around 40 people have died in the process. But this gave birth to Romania’s own secret passageway.
