For long isolated, Romania’s Carpathians offer some of the finest walking in Europe. There are well-waymarked paths, adequate maps and a good network of mountain huts. Yet, with its large area of mountains and low population density, Romania offers walkers the kind of solitude that is hard to find elsewhere in Europe. More than just beautiful landscapes, Europe’s wildest mountain region offers a chance to discover a way of life now disappeared further west. The country also has a remarkable wealth of wildlife — the region being one of the last European strongholds of wolf and bear. In addition to guiding the reader through remote areas, the book also covers more popular areas of the country, such as Poiana Brașov. Maps and concise, detailed walking instructions are included. There is also useful information on subjects including the Romanian language, ski resorts, accommodation, mountain biking and wildlife.
