Red Lake – The Largest Natural Lake In Romania

The Red lake is about 35 km away from the small Romanian city of Ghiorgheni, so if you plan to visit the place you should know that you will have to drive on winding roads in order to get there. I bet that the entire journey won’t disappoint you because you will have the opportunity to admire the beautiful mountainous scenery. As I had mentioned in my previous post, the lake was formed due to massive landslide which blocked a part of the valley and after that, the water started to gather in the newly created basin. That’s the history of the Red lake in a nutshell.

The only thing that I didn’t liked, was the lack of parking places in the area. Probably I am wrong but I saw only one paid parking place right next to the main road and that place was obviously full with cars. So I had to leave my car on the edge of the main road behind other cars.

Here are some photos from my trip to the Red lake, hope you like them and also don’t forget to share them with your friends.
