  • Nice place to spend some time when weather is good. The story of this lake is interesting and should be known. The plac  more »
  • A beautiful lake is like a bowl of formed mountains. The color of the lake is simply mesmerizing, the descending coolness in the evening makes the rest just wonderful. The lake and the surrounding area require protection. The lack of biotoilets with enough tourists kills the surrounding area. The napkins, the human faeces 100 meters from the lake spoil the whole experience.
