Impressive dam as well as the road to this place coming from Curtea de Arges. The best time to visit is from July to September when the Transfagarasan road is open, but we didn't have this opportunity. However, it was nice with extraordinarry views.

The landscape here is amazing and beautiful. It`s a great place to a weekend getaway. If you go up to the statue the view over the lake is amazing.

Monolithic feat of construction. An enormous dam holds back the water, with a massive drop off on the south side. Peer over the edge to speed up your heart rate. Heading north, park in the lot to the left as you exit the tunnel to...More

The dam is impressive and as part of a trip is very interesting. Driving up through the mountains then finding the dam. An extra in our trip which was worth it.
