Anybody passing through Neamț county must stop to the famous Bison Land Park. However, the Vânători Neamţ Natural Park means much more than the place where the bisons of Romania live. Spread over an area of almost 31,000 hectares, of which over 26,000 hectares of forest alone, in the northern part of Neamț County, the park hosts a diversity of cultural, historical and natural treasures. Here you can see rare or endangered species such as brown bear, laughter, otter, wild cat, carpathian stag, horseradish and, of course, European bison.
On the territory of the national park are the villages Crăcăoani, Agapia, Vânători-Neamţ and Bălțătești, as weel as Oglinzi, a thermal water resort. Not less than four protected areas are here. These are “Pădurea de Argint“, “Codrii de Aramă”, “Dumbrava Oak Reserve” and “Dragoș Vodă Bison Reserve”.
One day, for example, you could leave Agapia Monastery to the Sihla Monastery, taking a hike through the old mountain forests, or you could visit Neamţ Monastery and go on a bison safari.
If you are passionate about the Romanian cinema, you should also know that in the 70’s “The Jder Brothers” and “Ștefan cel Mare-Vaslui 1475″ were filmed in Vânători Neamţ Park.
