Lake Rugănești at Sunset

Published on October 5, 2021 by Zoltan Nyaradi

On our way back from lake Zetea, we decided to make a short stop at lake Rugănești since it was close to the main road leading to Sighișoara. This lake is pretty popular for those who like catch some fish and for campers as well. Also, you have the possibility to rent a small wooden house if you plan to stay there for a longer period.

When we arrived there, the sun started slowly to set behind some larger hills which surrounds the lake, to our luck the bar was still open and we managed to buy some refreshments. Since the sun started to disappear behind some larger hills, I’ve decided to capture some sunset photos of the lake before drove away from this amazing Transylvanian lake

This lake is located in Harghita county, on the outskirts of the village of Rugănești. The closest major city is Sighișoara which is about 26 km away from this lake.

What to do in the area:

  • As I mentioned above above, since the medieval citadel of Sighișoara is only 26 km away from this lake, I highly encourage you to check out this unique medieval citadel. I bet that you won’t regret it.
  • Another place that you can visit is the small memorial park from Bezid. Right next to the memorial park, you will find the lake Bezid.
  • I would like to mention the old fortified church from Saschiz.
