Saint Ana Lake – Is the only volcanic lake in Romania. It is situated at 946 meters altitude from the sea level and has the shape of an easel. Its water, almost distilled, is not good for drinking because of the lack of mineral salts. Saint Ana Lake is now a natural reservation.

The Saint Ana Lake is in a very beautiful place, with mountains around, mountains covered with fir trees like a crown. All over the Earth you cannot find a more beautiful place. In the old times, who can believe it, on the lake place was a very high pick with a proud fortress on the top of it, with view over the villages from Ciuc and Trei Scaune counties. But it was not the only fortress in the area. At an hour distance, near the Stinking Cave, was another proud fortress. It was long, long time ago. Now there is no trace of the fortresses. Only their memory, a sad memory, still exists.
