With an area of 238,400 square kilometers, Romania is the twelfth largest country in Europe. Located in Southeastern Europe, bordering on the Black Sea, the country is halfway between the equator and the North Pole and equidistant from the westernmost part of Europe—the Atlantic Coast—and the most easterly—the Ural Mountains.
Neamț is a county of Romania, in the historic region of Moldavia. In the western part, there are mountains, the Eastern Carpathians, with heights of over 1800m and the impressive peak of Mount Ceahlău. Along the Bicaz River lies the canyon of Cheile Bicazului. On the western side, the lowest point, at about 160m, is found along Siret River’s valley.
