Snagov Lake - Romanian Landscapes










Snagov is a lake 25–30 km from Bucharest, Romania.
It has a surface of 5.75 km².
The lake is famous due to the myth that Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (famous for having inspired
Bram Stoker's character Dracula) was buried in the Snagov monastery on an island only accessible by boat in the middle of Lake Snagov.
Snagov area is a natural reservation, with two natural protected areas - for fauna and flora : "Snagov Lake" (150 ha) www.snagov.ro/ANPLS and "Snagov Forest" (10 ha) www.snagov.ro/ANPPS

Bine zicea nenea ala mai devreme: ai deosebit simt al detaliului. Dar am impresia ca dormi cu aparatul la capul patului, daca nu sub perna :))

Despre fotografii: absolut fantastice!

Problema mare este ca nu mai am unde sa le stochez....

Trebuie gasit un spatiu de stocare, nu poti pierde frumusetiile surprinse cu ochiul tau dibaci.
Acela e faimosul Lac Snagov?
Hmm cei din guvern trebuiau sa mearga cu barca la sedinta :P :P

These are so stunning, at first they made me think of oil paintings.

I can only repeat what others have written -- these are stunning, breathtakingly beautiful and my first thought was of oil paintings, too! Incredible! Love the water and the clouds, the colors and the history! Too beautiful for Dracula!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
