Points of Interest

Closeby and in the near area are different Points of Interest (POI), a few shown below

Ghețarul de sub Zgurăști

The glacier under Zgurăști, also known as Peștera-aven. The glacier under Zgurăști houses the largest underground lake in Romania.

In this cave, an interesting meteorological phenomenon was reported by R. Jeannel and E. G. Racovita (1929), the formation of fog in the beam of light rays that penetrate the mouth of the cave at lunch time. It is assumed that it is a process of condensation of water around the forming ions, i.e. a process analogous to that in Wilson chambers. Another interesting element is the presence of muscles on the gym floor. It is about Thamnium alopecurum L. and Oxyrrhynchium praelongum (Hedw.), forms that grow under water and which indicate the maximum growth level of the lake.

Peștera Poarta Zmeilor

Poarta Zmeilor Cave is a fossil cave located in the northwest of the Trascău Mountains. Near it is a natural stone portal.
