Reservation Plaiul Fagului (Beech Field)

The natural reservation Plaiul Fagului appeared in 1992 following the transformation of the “Rădenii Vechi” hunting farm. It is located in the northeastern part of the Codrilor Plateau, with an area of 5558.7 hectares. With a fragmented territory, in places with a mountainous character, the reservation is located at an altitude between 410 and 140 meters above sea level.

The Rădeni River with a cascade of lakes divides the reservation into two, almost equal massifs.

The vegetation of the reserve includes about 680 species of vascular plants, of which 27 are included in the Red Book of the Republic of Moldova (red strawberry, lady’s slipper, gymnocarpus, biophilia lacrimita, etc.). The animal world counts 211 species: 142 birds, 49 mammals, 8 reptiles, 12 amphibians and 65 species of soil invertebrates. Among the mammals are widespread the wild cat, forest marten, badger, fox, wild boar, deer.

Being a scenic natural object, the reservation is partially accessible for ecological tourism.
