  • I consider the Lakes of this region one of the most beautiful places in Europe the only down side is the weather which was already influenced by the northern European area varies greatly. For example in July you can find 30° as 14 degrees which is just happened to us. Rain, Sun and clouds could happen multiple times in the same day. There are many activities you can do on the lakes from skiing and highly recommend renting a bike and go for tours in guided tours in the forests
