  • it is one of the great achievements of the last century. Highest dam in Romania and most spectacular as views. Maybe the most touristic, too. I never been there to find the place deserted. Weekends.....  more »
  • Place is nice to be seen, but is not parking place and traffic control, to manage a fluid traffic in to the area  more »
  • Beautiful view. Crowded with people and parked cars. Take first parking possibility. Better on bike to come. Attention - bears near roads and some tourists feed them.
  • Great views. Best part was taking a look over the edge of the dam. Only disappointing part was seeing a good bit of litter around the area
