Beach and cold baths area

The main stake of the Integrated Project is to attract tourists on the Techirghiol, tourists from all over the world. For this, the municipality must take care of the overview of the area, and also organize the facilities in an european style. So the lakeside will be transformed into a bathing area and recreation, covered with fine sand, where tourists can watch water competitions. The works include the lake development on an area of 7,000 square meters. The river bank will be boarded with stone to prevent its collapse or erosion, and the 21,400 square meters beach will be restored by adding sand. Moreover, a recreational garden will be created, it will be an area of 56,713 square meters and an area of 7,400 square meters for cold baths.

Lifeguards and tracks for people with disabilities

Also, there will be two lifeguard stations, properly equipped, and a first aid point.

They will enjoy the locker rooms, showers and bathrooms fitted to the highest quality standards.

If you were expecting bad new, you would have failed. No, the works won't spread over 10 or 15 years, but… almost two years! More precisely, the works will take place between 07/31/2012 – 31/03/2014. And the total investment budget is 15, 295, 798 RON. This is not the first investment that was made recently for Techirghiol Lake. In 2012, Mayor Adrian Stan opened the first sports base for yachting and rowing that ever existed in Techirghiol.

An investment that has proven profitable, as the 2012 summer has been a busy one in terms of tourism and water competitions. So the authorities believe that following these new design, the Techirghiol Lake should become a strong attraction for foreign tourists and investors in water sports.
