I like travelling anywhere, i've traveled a lot in Apuseni Mountains. For me Fantanele Lake is a boring place, there is not much to do. You can enjoy the area if you are going mountain biking. There are few accommodation facilities and places to eat. I've been here 4 times with my friends, but the only time I enjoy the... More

Good choice for a day trip if you are in the surroundings. Explore the area and enjoy a relaxing day fishing or on a boat ride on the lake. If you are lucky, you can even see the tower of the church, the "heart and soul" of the former village Belis, once flooded by the water of the river dam... More

It's probably the best place for camping and fishing in the Western Carpathians.The fishing fee is about 6.5 euro/day (with two fishing rods) and you can also use boats (I recommend electric engine).I usually fish C&R but it's aloud to keep 10 fish/day as long as they are in the limits set by the national regulations. Most common species are... More

Great place for one day trip outside Cluj. I recommend you to visit this place in the summer time, when is a dry season. You can see the church remains, that usualy is under the lake. Maybe you can contact a local giude when you visit this place so you can have a realy great day over there.

If you are looking for peace and quiet then this is the place. A little way outside of Cluj, you will need a car, is this beautiful lake. The surrounding forests and scenery are amazing. Clean air and little in the way of any distractions. A few hotels and places to eat is about all. If you want to relax,... More

If you need a little pace in your mind or you are undecided what to do in the future this the perfect place to think and to take the best decision. Panorama is fantastic the place is amazing and is very quiet. Also acomodation is available in the rural area. You must go there.
