The road to Lacu Rosu is amazing either way you climb up the mountain. The lake itself offers a very nice view. Bike and boat rentals are available but simply walking around the lake is also a very good plan. Cheile Bicaz are a short...More

The mood of the lake is very interesting with the pine tree boles in the water. It is not a long tour to walk around the lake but it is worth it. 75% of the walking line is easy and relatively good quality, the last...More

The lake itself is nothing special, though the surroundings are quite pretty. It does make a pleasant overnight stop driving between Bucovina and Cluj-Napoca. We quite enjoyed having a meal on a terrace with a view over the lake.

We stopped off for a picnic lunch. A pleasant small lake surrounded by hills and mountains. It doesn’t look red, by the way. You can walk around it in less than an hour. Not the kind of place to go out of your way to...More

This place can be reached by road, by car, by bus or by bicycle. It is the most beautiful place, with the lake in the middle, surrounded by rocks that rise up to the sky. From one side it seems to bleed the lake, giving...More
