Ipotești – Observatory – Codrilor albastru lake

After visiting the muesum complex dedicated to Mihai Eminescu, the next tourist objective is the „Observatory” – a metallic building erected in the summer of 1989, having 87 stairs (the number of the poems that Eminescu published during his lifetime). From the top, one can admire the panoramic surroundings that Eminescu wandered through, and on days with clear sky the mountains can be seen, as well as the relay on Prut river banks. The next important landmark, „barren rock” is a belvedere place which reveals Ipotesti as in the palm of one’s hand. At the end, after the abrupt descent over the 100 metres, the tourist reaches the „Blue Lake of the Forests”.
