Enjoy a long weekend to spot brown bears and other animals in Romania's Piatra Craiului National Park, in the picturesque Carpathian Mountains.

The Carpathian mountains are a 1,500-kilometre-long arc through Central and Eastern Europe, stretching from the Czech Republic to the Iron Gates on the River Danube in Romania, making them Europe's second longest chain (after the Scandinavian Mountains).

Much of the area is covered by unfragmented virgin forest, which provides a perfect habitat for brown bears, wolves, lynx and chamois.
