Carpathian Mountains
the last true wilderness of Europe

Romania is home of one of the last true wilderness in Europe and the Carpathians are the heart of it. About 1.500 km long, the Carpathian is the second longest mountain range in Europe, after Scandinavian Mountains. Our country hosts over 50% of the entire Carpathian Mountains, the rest of the range is spread in Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine and Serbia. These mountains are not necessarily noticed by their height, but by the diversity of the landscape and the richness of fauna and flora.
From primeval forests to imposing mountain ridges, from gorges and canyons to alpine meadows, and from spectacular caves to a very rich fauna and flora diversity, the Carpathian mountains has it all. Romania is home to nearly 65% of Europe’s primeval forests (except Russia) and almost all of them are in the Carpathians. This mountains for an ecosystem that is home for about 13,000 species of plants and animals. The Carpathians range have the largest population of big carnivores in Europe (bear, wolf and lynx), and in Romania is found the highest concentration. Among them, recently it was introduced back into the wild the European bison, the largest land mammal of the continent. From the Big 5 of Europe, Romania has four species (bear, wolf, lynx and European bison), only wolverine is out of the list, but only because Romania is not his habitat.
In Romania there are 27 National and Natural Parks, from which just 6 are not found in the Carpathians. Many of these parks are very beautiful and they offer great opportunities for landscape and wildlife photographers.
