Belis is a commune in the county of Cluj, Transylvania, Romania, consisting of the villages of Bălcești, Belis (residence), Dealu Botii, Giurcuța de Jos, Giurcuța de Sus, Poiana Horea and Smida. The Giurcuța de Jos village was decommissioned by decree 223/1972 for the construction of the Fântânele accumulation dam.
Belis commune is about 77 km west of Cluj-Napoca and about 27 km south of Huedin, located at the foot of the Vladeasa massif in the Apuseni mountains. The place name seems to be of Slavic origin.

Among the most important tourist objectives in the area, we mention: the fir tree of Horea from the Scorușet forest, the Rădesei Fortresses, the lake and the Beliș-Fântânele resort, the Valaul Miresei waterfall from Răchițele, the Galbena Gorges and the Izbucul Galbenei. The numerous caves are not to be missed either: Piatra Ponorului Cave, Gheșarul Scărișoara Cave, Bears Cave, Humple Cave and Kite Cave.

Archaeological discoveries in the region show that the first human settlements date back to the Paleolithic (in the Somes Plain, the Transylvanian Plain and the intracarpal plateau).
The exact date of formation of the locality is not known, but it is assumed that it was formed by the shepherds who came with the herds through the pasture area.
In the early 1970s, the Belis-Fantanele dam was built on the old street of the village, which is at a distance of about 3 km from Belis commune, in a mountainous area.
The lake covers a length of about 27 km and has a total area of ​​900 ha. The creation of the immense gloss of water could be achieved by relocating the houses on the hill, where the town is now. The old village, Giurcusa de Jos, with the hearth and the graves of the ancestors were flooded by the waters of the Fantanele accumulation lake.
In summer, when the water level of the lake drops, you can see the ruins of the village, especially the Church.
Valea Miresei waterfall, known as Rachitele waterfall, is located in a mountainous area of ​​the Apuseni mountains, formed by ridges in the form of keys. The access is made from the village of Rachitele, both pedestrianized and with the vehicle, on a forest road of about 7 km.
At a few hundred meters on the forest road, from the waterfall you reach a mountain slope where you can make a stop.
The area of ​​Lake Fantanele is located in the west of Cluj county, in the northern part of the Apuseni mountains, at an altitude of 990 m.

Belis commune has a strange history and is known by those living in central Transylvania.
Belisul is a small commune, with only 1,300 inhabitants. 40 years ago, all the peasants in Belis were forced to leave their homes and move to a hill near the commune. Belis came over the waters, the builders of those sad times, building a huge hydrographic dam. At the present time over the old fireplace of the settlement is the Fantanele-Belis accumulation lake.

Before the church was swallowed by water permanently, it was visible from wherever you looked, because it was built on a magura, and the houses of the moti inhabitants were built around it as if it were gravitating continuously, attracted by an unseen force to the human eye. Regardless of the season, the church remained a landmark for moti and they did what they did and always found and returned to it.

In summer, when the water of the lake falls, the inhabitants can see how the peaks of the old church rise from the immense expanse of water, but also the houses ten meters below the water. In the summer season, diving enthusiasts enjoy incredible landscapes when they swim on the old streets of Belis.

Due to the mountain landscape, the area of ​​Belis is recommended for the treatment of physical and intellectual overwork.
