Moldova is hilly with a subtle slope south toward the Black Sea. Moldova has a relatively rugged topography, however elevations never reach beyond 430 m (1,411 ft) - which is the country's highest point, Balanesti Hill.
These hilly regions are part of the Moldavian Plateau, a part of the Carpathian Mountains. Accounting for much of the terrain along that plateau are steep forested slopes interlaced by valleys and ravines.
Other important rivers of note include the Nistru and Byk.
