The country is made up of three different geographical regions; the Carpathian Mountains go through the centre of Romania, from the Ukraine and then they turn northwards. The Carpathian Mountains and the Transylvanian Alps almost encircle the central plain.
East of these mountains there is Europe’s largest second largest delta region, where the Danube flows into the Black Sea.
The Prut River forms Romania’s eastern border with Moldova, while the Danube River forms it's southern border with Bulgaria.
