National Parks

Romania has over 500 protected areas, including 12 national parks, three biosphere reserves and one World Natural Heritage site (the Danube Delta), totalling over 12,000 sq km. Most of these are in the Carpathians.

Except for the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBR), none of the reserves or national parks have organised visitor facilities. Some are accessible by public transport; others are not. More information on many reserves and parks are included in the relevant regional chapters.

Moldova has five scientific reserves and 30 protected areas, but has only recently designated one area as a national park, the 500-sq-km Lower Dniestr National Park (p322).

Following is a run-down of Romania's major parks and reserves.
