  • It's a quiet place, with a very beautiful landscape, breathe clean air. There's a trailer where you can eat a few nuts and drink fresh.

  • I love visiting the entire area of goat Castle that includes: the dam itself, river beaches, forest area, small typical villages. I think the whole area is well cared for and provided with sufficient facilities for tourism. Recommend!
