Beautiful place!!!

The Waze app took us through a crappy way at first. Then we found an other way, and got there. All in all, we enjoyed. Beautiful place and had a great time! Danny kofman.

So peaceful, so quiet and relaxing. You can just breathe in and take in the atmosphere and be one with nature.

Been there in August 2015. The whole area is beautiful and fascinating. There aren't many people in the lake, even in the hot season, and the silence is magical.

You have to visit one of the largest lakes in Romania. It`s a great place for water sports or for having a tent out week-end with friends.

Beautiful view, fresh air It's dangerous to swim there because they are strong water currents and water is very deep

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
