It's hard for me to be completely quiet and stunned by something, but this lake is nice to take your breath away. It's a bit hard to find because there are no signs in the street, but when you reach it you see something impressive. Crystal clear water, bright green blue, clean mountain air. The trees and the sassi present give an absolutely unparalleled view. If you want to see something wonderful, head to Lake Braies, and you will surely be satisfied!
