Something about :

 

Bicaz lake

 

     The “Izvorul Muntelui” barrier lake is another tourist attraction (it’s 35 km long on an area of 33 square meters.) and it is also known as “The Bicaz Lake.” This is the largest artificial lake from Romania, being situated on the higher course of the river Bistriţa. This place was formed as a result of the building of the Bicaz hydro-energetic dam, which is 127 m tall. (in order for it to be built, more than 170.000 cube meters were excavated). It is used to generate hydroelectricity at the Bicaz Stejaru hydro-plant.

     To achieve the construction of the Bicaz Dam nearly 20 villages had to be displaced.

     The works for the construction of the dam started in 1950, year that signified the approval of the electrification plan of the country. The costs have raised nearly 1, 7 billions lei and also have meant the loss of hundreds of people (they have died during the works). Many convicts worked here (most of them were political convicts that were specialists in the field), military men and brigadiers.

     For this project to be accomplished, nearly 20 villages had to be displaced. Two of them, Rapciuniţa and Cârnei, had to be totally extinguished. More than 18000 inhabitants from nearly 2300 house-holds were moved to other places.

     The Bicaz touristic port is a centre of great civilization, because of the recreation crafts that leave the port and the touristic stops in this area, especially near Izvorul Muntelui(Spring of the Mountain)-797 m in altitude. In Bicaz, one may visit a museum which holds exhibits that reveal the hydro-energetic buildings on the river Bistrita.
