The Carpathian chain consists of mountain ranges that stretch in an arc from the Czech Republic (3%) in the northwest through Slovakia (17%), Poland (10%), Hungary (4%) and Ukraine (11%) to Romania (53%) in the east and on to the Iron Gates on the River Danube between Romania and Serbia (2%) in the south.

The Carpathians and their piedmont also concentrate many thermal and mineral waters, with Romania having over one-third of the European total.
