Romania's natural landscape is almost evenly distributed between mountains (31%), hills (33%), and plains (36%). These varied landforms spread rather symmetrically from the Carpathian Mountains, reaching over 2,400 m altitude (maximum altitude - the Moldoveanu Peak of 2,544 m), to the Danube Delta, which is just a few meters above sea level. The range of the Carpathians extends over 1,000 km through the centre of the country, covering an area of 70,000 sq. km. These mountains are of low to medium altitude and are no wider than 100 km. They are cut by deep valleys and crossed by several major rivers. Another distinguishing feature are the many eroded platforms that provide tablelands at relatively high altitudes. There are permanent settlements here at above 1,200 m.
