Information about the Carpathian Mountains:
The Carpathian Mountains or Carpathians are a range of
mountains forming an arc roughly 1,500 km (932 mi) long across Central and Eastern Europe, making them the largest mountain range in Europe.
They provide the habitat for the largest European populations of brown bears, wolves, chamois
with the highest concentration in Romania,
as well as over one third of all European plant species.
The chain of mountain ranges stretches in an arc from the Czech Republic in the northwest to Slovakia,
in the east, to the Iron Gates on the Danube River between Romania
in the south. The highest range within the Carpathians are the Tatras, on the border of Poland and
where the highest peaks exceed 2,600 m (8,530 ft), followed by the Southern Carpathians in Romania, where the highest
peaks exceed 2,500 m (8,202 ft).
The Carpathian chain is usually divided into three major parts: the Western Carpathians (Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia,
Hungary), the Eastern Carpathians
(southeastern Poland, eastern Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania), and the
Southern Carpathians (Romania, Serbia).
The most important cities in or near the Carpathians are Bratislava
in Slovakia; Kraków in Poland; Cluj-Napoca,
in Romania; and Miskolc in Hungary.
