Bison Land - Discover Eco-Romania

Bison Land


Walk in wonder through the “Copper Forests” and “Silver Wood”, as they are known in our literature.


Visit piously the monastic villages Agapia and Văratec, unique in Europe.


Watch European bison roaming free.


Situated at the border between reality and fairy tale, this land is home to a priceless spiritual and natural wealth. The reintroduction of European bison, after years of efforts, is like a dream come true.

The monastic community here is the largest in Europe (after that from Mount Athos), the monastic villages are unique in Europe and the Neamț Fortress is truly one of the national symbols. The cultural value of the area is enhanced by the staying or passing through of famous Romanian literary and artistic figures such as Ion Creangă, Mihai Eminescu, Mihail Sadoveanu and Nicolae Grigorescu.

The secular forests, wild flower meadows and traditional food add value to an exceptional destination.
