If you ever thought Europe was tame and dull, Romania is one of those places that proves you wrong. If you thought that big charismatic wildlife was the preserve of far off countries and hard to reach wild places, then I urge you to take another look at Romania. Here in Piatra Craului, a national park nestled in the Carpathians, an hours walk takes you deep into thickly forested mountains hiding a healthy population of European Lynx, Wolves and even Bears. All alive and well, in the heart of Europe.
