A popular tourist attraction, it draws in thrill-seekers. Due to its steep and rapid slopes it makes an exciting rafting destination; ideal for water sports enthusiasts of all ages and suitable for recreation activities as a tourist spot.
This river boasts a temperate continental climate at an elevation of 1,100 meters, boasting waters rich in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus-containing dissolved minerals that attract tourists from across the nation. Surrounded by forest ecosystems as well as grasslands and natural monuments and reserves; Red Lake was formed due to a natural landslide in 1837 attracting many fishing spots that draw tourists in from far and wide.

Due to its rugged and mineralized terrain, this area has seen intense mining activity over many centuries. As a result, the upper reaches of the Bistrita River feature high concentrations of Fe, Mn, and polymetallic sulfides ore deposits. Furthermore, its morphogenic evolution has produced various sedimentary formations which affect drainage system chemistry and therefore alter it significantly. As such, this site serves as an excellent natural test site to measure geogenic and anthropogenic influences on fluvio-lacustrine systems in humid mid-latitude morphoclimatic zones. Substrate samples from the Bistrita River have been subjected to extensive analysis using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, near infrared and micro-Raman spectroscopy techniques. Our analyses indicate a clear correlation between changes in river water temperature and variations in air temperature.
The Buzau River, one of the major tributaries of Siret River, begins its journey from Ciucas Mountains and winds its way through wooded hills before entering a plain area and merging with Siret. A beautiful waterway suitable for year-round water rafting adventures due to its natural beauty and multiple reservoirs nearby, Buzau makes a great tourist spot.

Hydro-technical works such as dikes along major rivers and over 330 km of riverbed regularization and protection works can have a substantial impact on managing water resources quantitatively.
Buzau-Ialomita watershed area contains 20 natural lakes, some of which are used for fishing (Strachina and Iezer Slobozia Noua). There are also 13 reservoirs covering an area greater than 0.5 km2.
The river basin boasts 102 coded tributaries. Of these 102 tributaries, two of the major ones are Buzau River and Raul Calmatui which originate from Buzau City’s southern quarter and receive four coded tributaries as their source.
The Olt River in Romania, which forms a tributary of the Danube, runs through Harghita, Covasna, Brasov, Sibiu and Valcea counties and covers an approximate length of 670 kilometers between its source and influence of the Danube. With an approximate basin area covering 24,050 km2 (10% of national territory), its climate can be described as temperate-continental with wetter weather in its northern regions than southern ones.
Olt River Gorge is breathtaking and provides breathtaking landscapes. As Europe’s second longest gorge, its waters are clear and clean, rich with minerals used for hydro power production and numerous spas offer mineral baths and other health treatments nearby.

One of the most striking characteristics of this river is its geological structure, formed from glacial deposits eroded by water. This provides adventurers and tourists alike a stunning place for exploration with many gorges and caves waiting to be discovered! Additionally, this location is also popular tourist spot.
Heavy metal pollution of freshwater ecosystems remains an increasingly pressing concern worldwide, impacting both human health and the environment. To assess how contamination changes the community composition of microalgal and bacterial biofilms found within Olt River (Romania), field studies were carried out using amplicon sequencing technology – we found that reservoirs affected by metal pollution demonstrated lower richness and diversity compared with control ones.
Olt River Valley in Romania is one of the most beautiful spots where nature remains undisturbed by civilization.
