Trip: Cluj Napoca - Belis, Fantanele Resort

Beauties of Cluj County are among the most popular and visited ones throughout the country, because you rarely find such places where you feel more connected with nature as you do in the heart of Transylvania. One of the tourist attractions that are worth visiting more than once is Belis - Fantanele Resort, where the artificial lake offers outstanding views for tourists.


Starting the trip from Cluj-Napoca, you have to drive for 63 kilometers to reach Belis Lake, a distance which can be covered in about an hour. You exit Cluj, going to Oradea on E60 and cross the next localities: Floresti, Gilau and Capusu Mare. After passing the last one, you leave E60 and go on 108C, towards Manastireni, where you have to enter on 103C. Going forward on this road, you will reach Belis, after passing Rasca.


In Belis, you can find accommodations affordable for everyone. But you do not go there for hotels or anything like that. You go there for nature. It is the perfect place for those who want to give up on city noise and just relax for a couple of days, surrounded by crystal clear water, good smelling trees, sweet breezes and quietness. So much quietness!


On the vastness of Lake Belis you can find a dam, which is a truly impressive building. It is 95.50 meters tall, 400 meters long and 264 meters wide at the base. This dam was built on the Warm Somes, during 1970-1974, with electric power purpose.


During construction of the dam, the inhabitants of the old Belis had to move on the current village, due to the fact that water overflowed the former settlement, which is only visible today during hot days of summer, when the level of water is very low. The most famous ruins are the ones of the church from the former village of Lower Giurcuta.


For those who plan to stay for a few days in this corner of paradise, you can take into account some of the following attractions to visit nearby: the fortified Church from Valeni, Bear Cave, Alunu Cave, Gorges of Warm Somes, Dragon’s Cave, Horea’s Tree from Scoruset Forest or Ponorului Stone Cave.


You can also visit Rachitele Falls (Bridal Veil), located at 30 km from Belis. It is a waterfall of about 50 meters high. The place is surrounded by a legend about a bride falling onto the rocks on her wedding day, and her veil would have been left hanging. Also, the waterfall was formed from the tears of wedding guests, according to the legend.


Another interesting place is located 15 kilometers away from Belis, in the village called Rogojel. Here, you can find several Sequoia trees that were brought here all the way from California, America. The view of these trees is impressive, especially because they reach heights of about 140 meters.


The natural beauty of the area is a good enough reason to recommend it as the perfect destination for any tourists, in their holiday or simply in a weekend getaway.
