The 'Little Carpathians' are an approximately 100km long section of the Western Carpathian Mountains, covering the northern half of Slovakia and giving the Central European country most of its majestic mountainous landscape.  Over 40% of Slovakia is densely covered by fairytale-like forests, and when covered with a fresh blanket of pure, white snow, the scene is breathtaking.  HikeTheWorld was a Drone Video of the Week nominee for this stunning aerial video of this magical slice of Central Europe.

Romania-Transylvania, Land of the Carpathians

The core of the Romania's Transylvania region is the Transylvanian Plateau, which is more or less surrounded by various groupings or divisions of the Carpathian Mountains.  The mountains produce the other principal feature of Transylania, a series of rivers which ultimately drain into the Danube River (Europe's second longest waterway) and thence to the Black Sea.  Top contributor PaulVlad's created this excellent aerial video of this land, showing its connection to these great mountains and rivers.

Fall In The Carpathian Mountains

BearSkillz

One of the things which distinguish the Carpathian Mountains from the taller Alps Mountains to their west is the nature of the tree cover.  With their lower altitudes, the eastern range has a much higher mix of deciduous trees (i.e. trees with leaves).  Among other things, this gives rise to a stunning change of colors in the fall.  Contributor BearSkillz captured this to beautiful effect in this stunning drone video of the Romanian Carpathians during this magical turn of seasons.
