    The Carpathian Mountains are a range of mountains forming an arc roughly long across Central and Eastern Europe. It's the second-longest mountain range in Europe after the Scandinavian Mountains. The Carpathian Mountains consist of a chain of mountain ranges that stretch in an arc. The highest range within the Carpathians is the Tatras, on the border of Slovakia and Poland. The second-highest range is the Transylvanian Alps in Romania. The Carpathians are usually divided into three major parts: the Western Carpathians (Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia), the Eastern Carpathians (southeastern Poland, eastern Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania), the Southern Carpathians (Romania, Serbia).
