ROMANIA ~ Rodna Mountains National Park - UNESCO ~

...Great new National Park to add to my collection... it is the largest protected area in northern Romania... the amazing scenery at the Rodna Mountains National Park is of great beauty that shows traces of glaciation, with specific glacial valleys, lakes, slopes, rapids, steep peaks and cascades arising at nearly 1,000 m elevation... a place for nature lovers and hikers... Thanks Julia!!ヽ(ヅ)ノ

The National Park is located  in the Rodna Mountains, a subdivision of the Eastern Carpathians.The park started as a natural reserve back in 1932, when Romania was taking first steps in environmental protection. The name comes from the nearby Rodna Veche village.

 Rodna Mountains National Park is the second largest national park in the country, with an area of 47.177 ha. The importance of this protected area geology and geomorphology is due to both mountains and the presence of numerous species of iconic mammals, like the mysterious lynx, the brown bear, rare birds and thousands of plant species.

In 1979 the area was declared a biosphere reserve within the framework of UNESCO’s "Man and the Biosphere" Programme.
