Carpathian Mountains

Historically, Moldavia extended between the Carpathian Mountains (the historical border with Transylvania) and the Nistru River. The Prut River flowed approximately through its middle from north to south. Romania controls 43% of the former state’s territory.
The traditional border between the two Danubian Principalities – Moldavia and Wallachia – roughly coincided with the Milcov River. As a state, Moldavia also controlled a relatively narrow strip of land around Galati, which granted it access to the Chilia branch of the Danube.
