A beautiful landscape , an unreal world in the middle of a lovely green areas . What is appreciated is that they have parking , security and the story is someone who you can about the area and warns you that you can encounter dangers . Must visit !!!

an interesting visit to a strange phenomenon. There isnt much to see in this part of Romania according to the guides so might as well visit this. a bit off the beaten track though.

This is a place that you have to see once in a lifetime. It's a surprise from nature, so if you are near Buzau, take 3 hours of your time and visit them. I would like to underline the "ONCE" in my first remark, just that you can manage your expectations.

I was really excited that I have something unique next to the place my parents live, but I guess I had high expectations, so I was a little disappointed there were no big volcanoes. But it's still worth seeing :)

One of the most powerful experiences in Romania. Unusual countryside like from another world or planet. It´s interesting even for kids, who sometimes are fed up with walks and treks. They love to watch bubbling minierruptions. Unfortunatelly, the region of Buzau doesn´t have much to offer so this is a must. You won´t regret.

It's a nice place to just sit and watch a mini vulcano. Don't expect too much when the basic is very important and nice.

It is an interesting natural activity, not very common in Europe. It's fascinating to see the power of Earth coming out from the ground. You can be extremely close to a living "mini" volcano and see it in action. The Romanian authorities improved infrastructure in the area and now it's very easy to reach the place by car.

Muddy vulcanoes near Berca are spectacular and unusual landscape. The area looks like you've just landed on the moon. Not recommended to visit in a rainy day because of the mud. At the entrance in you can buy suvenirs and postcards.

The Mud Volcanoes near Berca, Romania are one of the most peculiar landscapes I have ever seen. There are 2 sites close to each other and each one is much vaster that I expected. The surface is warm close to the volcanoes and there is a smell of sulfur in the air.

This was something different. It was really interesting to walk around after reading about the volcanoes first, which I advise doing. There were quite a few areas bubbling over and the craters were neat. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.
