Retezat National Park

Looking positively alpine, but out on the eastern bends of the Carpathian range, the craggy Retezat Mountains come with countless summits that crash more than 2,300 meters up. They’re at their most eye-catching at the lovely preserves of the Retezat National Park, which is haloed in one of the oldest swathes of virgin forest in Europe. Above lie plateaus and lakes shrouded by the scree ridges of Peleaga (the tallest summit), a land roamed by lynxes and wolf packs.
