Article 471. Public domain property and private domain property

(1) The properties that belong to the state or to the administrative-territorial units are part of the private domain if they are not transferred to the public domain by virtue of law or in the manner established by law.

(2) The public domain of the state or of the administrative-territorial units includes properties determined by law, as well as properties that, by their nature, are for public use or public interest. The public interest involves dedicating the property to a public service or to any activity that satisfies the needs of the community without necessarily providing direct access for the community to the use of the property according to its mentioned purpose.

(3) The riches of any kind of subsoil, the airspace, waters, and forests used in the public interest, the natural resources of the economic zone and the continental shelf, communication routes, and other properties established by law, are exclusively public property.

(4) Properties of the public domain are inalienable, unseizable (unattachable), and not subject to prescription. The ownership over these properties is not extinguished by failure of use and it may not be acquired by third parties through acquisitive prescription.
