Bison Land is the place where nature, spirituality, culture and traditions coexist and blend harmoniously. The ecotourism destination overlaps the Vânători Neamț Nature Park, the town of Târgu Neamț, the communes of Agapia, Bălțătești, Crăcăoani and Vânători Neamț. It is the only place in Europe where the bison can be seen in freedom, semi-freedom and captivity at the same time.
The place where legends and bison roam free.
Do you want an unique experience? Do you enjoy adrenaline rush? Do you like to observe wildlife? Or maybe you just want to spend quality time with your loved ones in the middle of nature. Then we challenge you to try the experience of searching for the bisons together with the staff of the Vânători Neamț Nature Park.
Spirituality is an energy of the Bison Land ecotourism destination. More than 1100 monks and nuns living in the area’s monasteries and hermitages make the region the second largest monastic area after Mount Athos. Another European uniqueness are the monastic villages of Agapia and Văratec Monasteries.
The beauty and special energy of these places is proven by the various writings mentioning locations from Bison Land, as well as the 4 memorial houses that can be visited. Here one can discover the world of childhood, or the charm of the Copper Forest and the Silver Forest.
