Leisure parks


This park was declared a protected area in 1955, but the current boundaries were established in 2003. The 7,742.5 hectares of the park encompass the following reservations: Ocolaşul Mare (with the highest summit – 1,907 m), Poliţa cu Crini, Cascada Duruitoarea (30 m high) and Avenul mare (a spectacular sinkhole formed by waters in limestone).

Ceahlău National Park Visitors’ Centre from Izvorul Muntelui is the place where, before embarking on a trip to the plateau of Ceahlău Massif, visitors can learn more about the secrets of the ancient mountain through attractive, interactive techniques. The Visitors’ Centre stands as both an ambassador for visitors who have not yet decided to go on a hike, but also as a convincing invitation to return soon, for visitors who already discovered the mountain and had their share of unforgettable experiences.

Toaca Peak-a Stairway to Heaven

Standing higher than the other mountains around and also due to its relatively lonely position, Ceahlău Mountain, the Olympus of Moldavia -as it is also known-  is the second Holy mountain of the Orthodox Christianity after Mount Athos. Here, as incredible as it may seem to be, almost every rock, river or hidden place has a special name and story of its own.

The stairway towards Toaca Peak consists of more than 500 steps. It is a project was initiated and integrally financed by Neamț County Council. Going up the stairs, the tourists follow a route towards the sky from 1771 to 1893m high. Once at the top, the tourists can enjoy an amazing scenery, a beautiful landscape, so powerful and emotional that no one can wrap their words around.

The Visitors’ Centre is more than a museum, inviting its visitors to step inside a natural micro universe and gradually discover its mysteries, in an unusual audio-visual experience.
