Vadu Crişului waterfall is located in a very beautiful natural landscape in the Pădurea Craiului Mountains, on the left bank of Crişul Repede river, near the entrance to the Vadu Crisului Cave.
The water coming out of the Vadu Crisului Cave, realizes the last natural wonder, the Vadu Crisului Falls, a 9 m drop, which reaches a spectacular water-pouring limestone and then reaches Crisul Repede.
Vadu Crişului waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Romania and due to the natural environment which is spectacular.
Thus, since 1955, the cave Vadu Crisului and the waterfall, with the entire gorge, have been declared a natural reserve.
You can reach the base of the waterfall, following a rather steep path, where you can almost admire the fall of water. The waterfall can also be admired by those who travel by train on the Oradea-Cluj route.

We’re left with the duty to respect these parts at our every step, keep them clean and pristine for generations to come, and for us as well, because in Nature, “the tourist comes to gladden his eyes, the thinker encounters a grand book where every rock is a letter, where every lake is a phrase, where every village is an accent and from whence a smoke of ancient memories emerges”. (Victor Hugo)
