Has anyone driven this road? I'm going from Sofia to Bucharest in a couple months was wondering if its worth it to take a couple days extra to drive this.

Can it be done in a day and back to bucharest or should I find somewhere to stay overnight and come back the next day?

I've seen pictures of it in the past. It looks completely insane, and definitely worth the detour to go visit!! I hope you'll take some pictures to share with us when you're there.
