About Siriu Lake

The dam (Lake Siriu) is located in Siriului Mountains, at an altitude of 1.300 m, on the Buzau River between massive Siriu and massive Podu Calului.

With a height of over 100 m and 600 m opening, the dam is a belvedere point.

The dam was approved in January 1972 and was completed in December 1994.

The main purpose of the dam was on the one hand, to suplly water for the nearest localities and to irrigate 50.000 ha of agricultural land, and on the other hand, to produce electricity, by building the Nehoiasu hydropower plant  with an installed capacity of 42 MW, having an installed flow of 32 m³ / s and generating an average production of electricity per year  of 144 GWh.

The development of agro-tourism hotels and chalets makes the area of Lake Siriu to be a recreational place, as they say, a "green" tourism.

In the time spent on Lake Siriu can practice horse riding, hiking, cycling, fishing or you can enjoy the nature in its splendor.
