The Retezat Mountains, considered "the jewel of the Carpathian Arc", lie on an area of over 38,138 hectares. The largest and most interesting part of the massif is part of the Retezat National Park.
Rightly, the Retezat National Park website (www.retezat.ro
) lists 7 reasons why Retezat should be considered a special place:
- has 80 "blue eyes" - the 80 lakes and tides in which the blue of the sky mirrors
- has the largest glacier lake in Romania - Lake Bucura
- has the deepest glacier lake in Romania - Lake Zanoaga
- has over 20 spikes higher than 2000 meters
- is the place that causes you to decipher the mystery surrounding the Gugu peak or to discover where the strange "air" of the Tau of Brazi comes from;
In the same massif you find a typical glacier relief, with valleys, lakes and glacier circles, but also the peaks of caves, caves and avenues;
- is the source of many fascinating legends and stories about valiant ladies, suave princes, pardons with mercy towards the orpeans, winged dances and ... dwarf dinosaurs.
