Three weeks ago I was on a short vacation, as I told you in the post "Olt Defile". One of the places that I visited and impressed me was Vidraru Dam, built in 1965 on Arges river to produce hydroelectricity.
Vidraru is an arch dam built on a foundation of rock and it's situated between Fruntii mountains and Ghitu mountains and it collects the water of 8 little rivers.
The dam's height is 166 meters, the arch length 305 meters, water accumulation volume 465 million cubic meters, the reservoir has a total shoreline (perimeter) length of 28km.
The road till Vidraru Dam is great because it reveal you spectacular and wild landscapes and to get to the dam, you have to pass through many tunnels, which are dug in the rock!
I put some photos of this wonderful place!
