Why bear watching in Romania?

Thanks to the relatively low level of human intervention, Romania has become home to the largest brown bear population in Europe. Here, in Transylvania, in the heart of the Carpathian mountains, you have the chance to observe these majestic animals in their natural habitat. Find out interesting facts about the bear life in the wilderness and capture unique moments with your camera. Bear watching in Romania has become more popular as people started to prefer this sustainable way to deal with bears and other wild animals.
