A trip to Lake Dragan, Bucea, Romania
Hi friends, this article is about the Lake Dragan just about 120 km from Oradea. My colleges from the company and me decided to visit this lake just for a little recreation in the weekend.
We traveled almost 2 hours to it. It is a barrage lake used for electric energy and it has about 292 ha surface. The deepest point is about 100 m. It is really huge and beautiful.
The coast of the lake is really bluff near the road is nothing, no coast, just the lake. After a great lunch in tiny but beautiful forester place near the lake we start to find a way to go down to the lake and to swim and boating a little bit. After one hour of searching we finally find a little entry to the lake. It was a really great experience with our rubber boat.
The weather was not exactly what we expect, the sky was cloudy and it was a little bit cold, but it was good.
It was great day, we laugh a lot, and the important thing is that we were together.
