Apuseni Natural Park

Located in western Romania, in the northwestern part of the Apuseni Mountains (Western Carpathians), the Apuseni Natural Park was established in 2004. Spanning over an area of over 75,000 hectares, the Park is delimited by the Codru-Moma Moutains in southwest, the Bihorului Mountains in the south, the Vladeasa Massif in the north, the Padurea Craiului Mountains in the northwest, and the Gilau Mountains in the east.

The area is filled with remarkable natural formations formed over millennia by the corrosion of the soft limestone that makes up the Apuseni mountains, creating countless caves, gorges, and canyons.
