  • Bodvai Furnace

  • The Red Lake
The Red Lake is one of the most distinctive tourist sites in Transylvania, because it is considered a natural rarity. The lake is 8 km long and was formed at the beginning of 1800’s as a result of the scree that rolled down a nearby mountain. According to the local legend, Eszter, a local woman, asked the mountains for help to escape a mugger who was chasing her. In response to her prayers, a great earthquake took place and heavy rain started. As a result, the scree rolling down the mountain buried the mugger and the girl, killing both of them and thus forming the Red Lake. It is a remarkable place and one of the favourites of tourists. You can go there to row a boat, to hike or to ride the bike.
  • St. Ana Lake
St. Ana Lake was formed in the only volcanic crater left in central and eastern Europe, in one of the two twin craters of the most southern group of volcanic mountains belonging to Harghita Mountain Group, in the Ciomad Mountains. This is why it is often referred to as a crater lake, which in itself represents a natural rarity. Apart from being a true natural wonder, it also offers a splendid view. The lake that is surrounded by a fir forest looks like a fairy tale place – particularly at dusk, while rowing a boat, when the twilight glows, making the surface of the lake shine. If you are looking for a romantic place, this could be an excellent choice.

  • Daniel Castle in Vârghiș

One of the main tourist attractions that is a must-see in Vârghiș is the impressive Daniel Castle that was built in various stages in time and in various styles. It was first mentioned in the official documents in 1580 under the name of “Daniel Castle in Vârghiș”. Until the middle of the 20th century, it was owned by the Daniel Family, but after the 1949 nationalisation, it became a state property and the family was forced to move. The hardships of the following decades left the castle in a terrible state. Later on, between 1980 and 1984, the building was finally restored. At present, the castle is owned by Esztergomi Önkormányzat (the Local Administration in Esztergom) and it can be visited on a daily basis between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
