Exploring five unfamiliar places in Eastern Europe by car

Exploring five unfamiliar places in Eastern Europe by car

28.03.2018: ē Driving along a motorway with 90 kilometres of curves or crossing the Carpathians are just a few examples of our recommendations for an enjoyable driving experience in eastern Europe

•    Driving along a motorway with 90 kilometres of curves or crossing the Carpathians are just a few examples of our recommendations for an enjoyable driving experience in eastern Europe


•    Nature, scenic landscapes and historical locations connect on a route through Serbia, Romania, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia


•    With 33,000 cars sold in 2017, SEAT increased its sales in eastern Europe by 18% compared to the year before





Eastern Europe features a high concentration of some of the most spectacular settings where you can drive to your heart’s content.



The Transfagarasan motorway in Romania, with 90 kilometres of curves, or European route E75, a network of main roads that runs south from Norway to Poland, are just two examples. Below are five proposals for those travellers who like discovering new destinations at the wheel that are off the beaten track.
 


- A route among Serbian vineyards: From the Serbian capital, Belgrade, the E70 motorway heads north through the Province of Vojvodina, which is famous for being the country’s most important wine region. Among vineyards and rolling hills, the motorway continues on to the Fruska Gora national park, with more than 16 medieval monasteries tucked in the mountains.
 


- Romania’s Transfagarasan and its 90 km of curves: The Transfagarasan motorway is located in northern Romania. Extending a length of 90 kilometres, it meanders through the rugged hills of the Carpathian mountains. Besides its wonderful landscape, along the route is Castle Poenari, home to the prince that inspired Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula.
 


- Poland, 23 National Parks to explore: The Stolowe Mountains National Park in Poland’s Klodzko county is one of 23 in the country. It features several routes to combine driving and hiking through the gorges and ravines found in the Table Mountains – a 42 km long mountain range in Poland and the Czech Republic.
 


- Refreshing swim at the foot of the Alps: Located in the foothills of the Julian Alps in Slovenia, travellers will find the town of Bled, with a population of a few more than 5,000 people. The major attraction of this part of Eastern Europe is the town’s eponymous lake, where visitors can make a stop on their journey and take a swim.
 


- Buda and Pest, a drive through the history of Hungary: When travelling through Hungary, particular mention goes to its capital, Budapest. In the city, visitors can cross the Chain Bridge, which is the oldest across the Danube in Hungary and links the two sides, Buda and Pest.
 


- An emerging market for SEAT: With 33,000 car units sold in 2017, the company increased its sales in Eastern Europe by 18% compared to 2016.
