Wild Carpathia: A BBC quality production on the hidden treasures of Romania

Filming the Last Untouched European Wilderness

"Wild Carpathia is a stunning documentary about a little-known part of Europe. Romania has a huge virtually-untouched area of mountains almost the size of Britain. It is the heavily-forested home to some of Europe's most exciting species, including alpine Chamois, and particularly large carnivores like Brown Bears, Wolves and the elusive Lynx. Much of the area is a time-capsule with an almost-medieval life-style." (http://www.earthtimes.org/)


I highly recommend you watch this documentary. Great quality. Thank you BBC!
