The sovereign state of Romania (România) is the largest country in Southeastern Europe. The centre of Romania is dominated by the Carpathian Mountains, with the highest point being Moldoveanu Peak. The Moldavian and Transylvanian plateaus, Carpathian Basin and Wallahian plains surround the Carpathians.
Romania has a large area of unspoiled forest, and almost half of the country’s terrains sustain natural and semi-natural ecosystems, thirteen nationals parks and three biosphere reserves. In Romania, the Danube River has its largest part on the border with Serbia and Bulgaria and flows into the Black Sea forming the Danube Delta. Romania’s cities, including the capital Bucharest, are culturally rich with a joyful ambiance. Discover Romania on our live webcam-sharing platform!
