ApuseniValea Crisului RepedeBeiusCampia Crisurilor








It is an area crossed by the river Crisul Repede, a real spinal column of these parts and maybe the most known among the three rivers. Its course crosses both a part of the Padurea Craiului Mountains and a plain area, in order to reach its climax right in Oradea. The magic of the trip combines the landscapes beauty with the permanent temptation of the mountain and numerous routes coming down off its karstic plateaus which are also housing human settlements. It certainly is one of the most interesting combinations between human and nature in Bihor County. Obiective turistice din valea Crisului Repede.
