Photo Tour Special Edition

The Văcărești Lake is an old abandoned communist grand project. But Mother Nature had other plans and a small ecosystem had developed in the 190 hectares basin in a surreal urban landscape. 90 species of mammals, birds and invertebrates just a few subway stops from downtown.

This tour is for all you nature lovers out there! We’ll deal with heat, cold, dust, rain or snow, but it’s all to take great photographs.
