Un nouveau parc naturel autour d’un vieux lac artificiel : les enjeux d’une Roumanie en transition dans les monts Apuseni

Abstract : In 2006, the centre of the Apuseni Mountains, with its diverse landscapes and ethnological traditions, provided a favourable framework for the creation of a national park in Romania. Its western situation outside the Carpathian Mountains (in a strict sense), its recent creation and the spontaneous nature of its development in the north-eastern part give it an original character. Tourism, based on the karstic landscapes and the ethnographic traditions of the Moti, is the main activity. However, in the north-east the flooding of the Somesul Cald valley following the construction of the Fantanele dam has led to the reorganisation of the region around this focal point, with a network of villages and a new transport system. Recently, the water sports resort and skiing facilities above the lake are seeking to attract new investors. Contrary to previous parks, it is the most artificial part of this park which has become the most attractive, but its sustainable development is in danger. A change in its geographical limits is necessary, with an extension towards the north-east.
