Carpathian forests

Romania’s forests, especially those in Transylvania and the Carpathians, are renowned for their biodiversity and cultural importance.

The country boasts some of Europe’s most extensive virgin forests, covering approximately 250,000 hectares, making it home to the continent’s largest remaining old-growth forests. In contrast, the rest of Europe has seen significant depletion of its old-growth forests, with less than 1% remaining in most countries.

These ancient forests play a vital role in storing carbon, regulating water cycles and offering protection from natural disasters like floods and droughts, or landslides and avalanches. They stand as vital sanctuaries for a wide range of plant and animal species, including iconic carnivores such as the European brown bear and Eurasian lynx. Moreover, keen bird-watchers flock to the region to catch a glimpse of rare avian species such as the Ural owl, white-backed woodpeckers or capercaillie.
