Drăganului Valley is a village in Poieni commune in Cluj county, Transylvania, Romania. It is located at the border of the Vlădeasa mountains, the Meseș mountains and the Huedin depression. It is crossed by the river Drăgan. It is located 65 km from Cluj-Napoca and 84 km from Oradea.
Draganului Valley offers breathtaking landscapes. Pensions are numerous and the hospitality of the hosts is proverbial.
The little ones can play with ponies or they can admire peacocks and pheasants. At the end of Draganului Valley, at 20 km from E60, there is Lake Floroiu, formed by erecting a dam of 120 m high and 424 m long, and from here, with a field car you can reach Stana de Vale.
More than just a tourist location, the Drăgan Dam and the entire Valea Drăganului area embody history with picturesque elements. Under the water, not far from the dam, the walls of the hut at Pârâul Crucii are hidden. Legend has it that many Romanians took refuge from all the villages ceded by the Vienna Dictate in 1940.
200 meters above the dam is the Floroiu colony, once a miniature town, built for builders and their families. The name of Floroiu comes from a little boy owned by a certain Mr. Floroiu. In the evening, the workers from the dam were still going to Floroiu, so the name was extended to the small settlement and then to the dam - to Floroiu.
Looking towards the tail of the lake, it stands out, like an imposing guard, Buteasa Peak (1,714 meters). On the right you can see the hamlet of Alunu, asleep under Caprei Peak, Poieniţa - with the last houses hanging from the hill at Mişcu, and towards Remeţi, the tranișeni pasture, Rânşoru (luncşor).
The lake of accumulation is populated with fish (clean, bream, native trout, rainbow trout and even golden trout) and is known as a perfect place for relaxation. With a height of 120 meters and an opening of 424 meters, the dam forms an accumulation lake of 292 hectares, with 112 million cubic meters of water.
Not far from the dam is located the lake from Belis that carries with it another legend, that of the church hidden on the bottom of the lake.
The road to the Drăganului Dam is practicable throughout the year. It is good to know that it is forbidden to stop cars on the dam, as well as shooting or filming on the dam.
