It is the biggest artificial lake in Romania, and also has the biggest dam. It is bordered by the Ceahlau mountain and the views are amazing. There are also some good places for trout fishing

Wonderful place to visit, starting point for mountain hiking. Magnificent surroundings. Tens of thousands of tourists stopping by each year. Highly recommended as tourist destination.

We stopped on our way towards Transylvania from Moldova. Good stop to stretch your legs, have some great views, and check the few local souvenir shops.

There are two spectacular dams in Romania: one holding the Vidraru Lake and the other one holding Lake Izvorul Muntelui. Bicaz dam is the biggest dam in Romania (and although not so poppular like Vidradu dam) is the most spectacular. If you arrive by chance in the NE of Romania you should definetly visit it (i recommend it by car).

If you're in the zone, take one or two hours and have a walk around the lake. It's a very nice one and you can also stop at restaurants in the zone. I was camping here a few years ago, it's a great experience, so don't hesitate doing it. Only disadvantage was that it rained and we were not prepare... More

Claudia A: "To get to the best place for taking beautiful photos, just drive to Bicaz dam, and continue your road after crossing the damn for about 30 minutes. On the drivers side, there will be an opening and a spot to park the car and enjoy the view"... of the lake and Ceahlau Mountains. The place is called Ruginesti.

I know the lake for 25 years ago. I went there often. The principal activity is fishing, also you can take sun bath and swim. The main road is a little far from the lake, but there are some places you can go down to the lake, by foot: at Ruginesti, Buhalnita, Chiriteni, Hangu and some more others. The best... More
