About Eagle's Lake

Eagle's Lake (Lacul Vulturilor) is a periglacial lake located in the Buzau Mountains, at the Carpathian Mountains south-eastern curvature, at an altitude of 1.420 m. The nearest town is Siriu.

Its name derives from a legend noted by Alexandru Vlahuta in his work Romania pitoreasca. The legend tells that in spring, eagles come to the lake to teach their cubs how to fly and that by drinking the water, the eagles grew younger.

The lake is also known as the Bottomless Lake, although its depth does not exceed 2.5 meters.
