Discovering Romania-Wild Carpathia (Mountains of Transylvania)


Wild Carpathia is a unique trilogy of films about the priceless majesty of the forests and mountains of Romania. Charlie Ottley takes a tour of this extraordinary region and uncovers a world of medieval villages, ancient monasteries, historic traditions and mesmerising beauty. From Transylvania's stunning national parks to the Danube Delta, we get a unique insight into a landscape that has endured unchanged for thousands of years and still home to wolves, lynx and the largest concentration of brown bears in Europe. Meeting a glittering array of characters from local shepherds, environmentalists, artisans and musicians to rock stars and royalty, Charlie learns how they are all dedicated to preserving what has become Europe's last true wilderness. Wild Carpathia has, with the help of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and other key supporters, become an international phenomenon.

Charlie Ottley ventures deep into the breath-taking but little known mountains and forests of Carpathia. Home to bears, wolves and the elusive lynx, this is perhaps the last great wilderness in Europe, seen as never before. Charlie provides a unique insight into the scenic beauty and rich culture of the region, exploring its chequered history from the mystical ruins of the ancient Dacian civilisations to its medieval communities, the heritage of which survives intact to this day. In his quest to find remote villages, cross mountains and spot bears in the wild, Charlie meets a range of colourful characters including shepherds, artists, eco-warriors, craftsmen, trackers, even a Count. Wild Carpathia captures the fragile majesty of a unique eco-system and show why it deserves to be preserved in all its glory for the benefit of future generations.
