About The Blue Lake

Blue Lake is located in Baia Sprie on the southern slope of Hill Mine at an altitude of 530 m, with an area of 0.5 hectares and was declared a protected area in 1977.

The lake formed by the collapse of old mine workings during the years 1919, 1920. Around the lake there are a few samples of pine which give the area charm.

The lake is unique in origin (collapse of a mine galleries) and water chemistry, because water solubilization of sulfur compounds makes it sometimes green, sometimes with emerald reflexes.
