Discover the tourist attractions in Vânători Neamţ Natural Park




Situated in the northern part of the county, on the eastern slope of Stânişoara Mountains and Subcarpathians in Neamţ, Vânători Neamţ Natural Park is among the protected natural areas in the county, covering a surface of almost 76.600 acres, aims to protect and conserve the population of bison, once a component of wildlife fauna of Romania. The park is the only place in Europe where tourists can visit the bison, the largest land animal on the continent, in three habitat types: in freedom, in the forests of the park, inside “Dragoş Vodă” Carpathian Wildlife and Bisons Reserve but also in semi-freedom, in the acclimatization enclosure. The acclimatization and release of the bisons in the forests of Neamţ county began in the spring of 2012, and now, in the park, there are over 36 bisons roaming free in a wild area of over 172.975 acres.

The romantic Alexandru Vlahuṭă wrote in his famous „Picturesque Romania” about these places: Secu and Neamţ Monasteries, Neamț Fortress and also Agapia Monastery. If we keep in mind the undeniable value and mysticism of the old monastic settlements in Neamţ, then the picture is complete and it respresents just as many reasons for you, traveler, to return to this legendary land country full of history, culture and beautiful places.
