Buhui Lake is the first underground storage lake and the oldest artificial lake in Romania.
The lake was built in 1884 by the Austro-Hungarian administration for providing water supply of Anina and is surrounded by an extremely picturesque fir forest mixed with beech.

Tourists are attracted to the area by the beautiful nature. The quietness of the places, the ionized air and the landscape offer an ideal place for spending leisure time in harmony with nature. Due to the karst region, the are some caves that can be visited nearby, among which the most spectacular is the Buhui Cave.
