A list of Romanian explorers:


  • Florica Sas (1826–1913) — the wife of Sir Samuel White Baker, she was active with her expedition-leader husband in Africa as a full participant.
  • Bazil Assan (1860–1918) — from 1896 to 1897 he travelled and studied Lapland, the Arctic, Spitzbergen, discovering new islands; he later voyaged fully around the world and on his return, with the King of Romania's permission, boarded the NMS Elisabeta warship and took possession of certain unclaimed islands in the Pacific for Romania, but the project fell short for financial reasons.
