Excursion at the Bicaz Canyon (Cheile Bicazului), Romania
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 could go down. It was amazing: you are between the mountains, you can even touch the rocks, but the cars are passing near you. Some guys were mountaineering, and the tourists stopped to watch it. After a couple of minutes the group of tourists grew so large that the cars could hardly pass by them. Oh, and a very funny thing: the cars can drive slowly because of the tourists but not just because of them; the locals are still using carts... with one or two "horsepower" you can imagine how fast they run...:)
We could hardly find a parking place. There were no official parking places just the edge of the road. There were bigger places but these were occupied by different vendors.
After spending about an hour here we decided to go further to the Red Lake.

Amazing canyon in Romania
Recommended Eforie Nord Guide
There are not many hotels and villas on the beach most of them being located 100 m upwards from the beach so you’ll have a bit of a walk before getting to the beach unless you stay at Europa Hotel for example. The centre of the resort is concentrated on the promenade that takes you to the beach it is the only street taking you to the beach as the resort lies a bit above sea level. Of course you can also get to the beach from the main road that connects Eforie Nord to the other resorts and many locals choose this way as they enjoy quieter places. They come by car from Constanta for example and stop by the beach and enjoy and in the... Read more »
