Short description

In the last years the local authorities are involved in a complex plan to develop the area as a touristic destinationspecially in the villages Izvorul Muntelui and Potoci. As a result they’ve managed to properly organize the lake Izvorul Muntelui for entertainment purposes. The lake is filled with small boats and small ships for tourists and it’s also a belvedere point toward the Ceahlau Mountain. Here, on this lake, every year on the 15 of August there is the celebration of the Navy.

Because of its location, the town Bicaz represents the access point to many touristic objectives from the Neamt County: the lake Izvorul Muntelui (5 km), Ceahlau Moutnain, Tosorog Cave (24 km), Munticelu Cave (26 km), Cheile Bicazului, Cheile Sugaului, Monastery Buhalnita or the Durau resort.
