You certainly haven’t heard of many of Romania’s wonders. But the truth is that Romania is one of the most spectacular countries in Europe. Many of its wonders are hidden from the eyes of those who do not know how to discover them. Our country has been touristically too less promoted, but here are 12 reasons that will convince you to visit us right away!
The Romanian Carpathians are covered by the largest virgin forests in the temperate zone of Europe. These forests are part of our history and cultural identity. They are the remains of the endless forests that once covered over 80% of the territory of present-day Romania. About 13,000 species live in these forests, including Europe’s largest population of bears, rare and endemic species, and large carnivores such as wolves and lynxes. Here, all the living creatures, including trees, live in a balance that is the result of thousands of years of evolution.
The Danube Delta, the largest river delta wetland in Europe, has become one of the finest, wildest, best-protected and most famous wildlife areas of the whole continent. The Danube delta hosts over 300 species of birds as well as 45 freshwater fish species in its numerous lakes and marshes. One of the least populated areas in Europe, the Danube Delta offers a unique opportunity to restore a whole spectrum of biodiverse habitats – from open estuarine systems, naturally grazed grassland and vast reed beds through to freshwater marshes, coastal lagoons, shallow lakes and riverine forests.
