Amazing canyon in Romania, Bicaz
After leaving the St. Anna lake we continued our journey. Our plan was to find a place to sleep in the village where the Red Lake (Killer Lake) is but we weren't lucky and by the time we arrived almost all the hotels and motels were full. We found a place (a little motel) where we would have to pay $80/room to stay only one night... it was funny when the owner told us the price:) In a 3-star hotel one night stay costs about $50-$60...
So tired and a bit sad we decided to go further hoping that we will find a motel in a village near this. It was dusk already so we were in hurry. After a few kilometers we reached a very interesting place. The road cut through the mountains but the rocks were so close that sometimes we could have touched them from our car's window. It was a bit frightening because it was almost night and there were no lights. At that time we didn't realise that this was the famous Bicaz Canyon which we planned to see on the next day:) I had been there once but I think about 10 years ago and I remembered this place kind a different...:P
Finally we arrived to a village named Bicazul Ardelean where we found a motel and went to sleep. In the next morning we talked a bit with the owner of the place and we also got some coffee to drink:). She was very friendly and helpful. She adviced us to go to see the Bicaz artificial lake and barrage a few kilometers away.
It was a really good advice:) The lake was huge and it was interesting to see from the top of the barrage the boats on the lake... they were so little:)
After a few minutes we set off to our next stop: the Bicaz Canyon.

Excursion at the Bicaz Canyon (Cheile Bicazului) - Aug 13, 2007, by szbogi
We arrived quite soon to the Bicaz Canyon (in Hungarian is Bekas szoros). I think this place is unique in Romania. The road cuts through the mountains and it's just wide enough for two lanes. Near the road there was a stream, where you... Read more »
