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.

Well, this is something different that I ever seen before. Lovely experience and awesome time spent there, but no toilets around.

After the big ones, we went to the little ones... we choose good, the small ones are more wild & beautiful. Amazing places.

It was so beyond my expectations, and my expectations were very high. We came before sunset and the place looked surreal - we visited two sites - they are not far away from each other. Volcanos are rather small in height, but they were very active, like boiling pots, bubbling from all sides. We were lucky to stay alone so... More

Those volcanoes are formed by the gases escaped from the earth; in their way out to the surface, those gases are dragging with them small amounts of water, melting the soil and resulting these so called volcanoes. The lanscape looks like a portion of the Moon, multiple layers of mud formed small hills and valleys. A must see turistic objective... More

We were staying in Buzau for a couple of day, for a wedding. Our hosts had organised for us a morning sightseeing trip to the muddy volcanoes . We arrived after an hour's car journey from Buzau, and spent an hour walking around the area, which seemed to be some kind of nature reserve containing various hiking routes. The bubbling... More

Went to the mud pits to see what it was all about. Pretty cool to see really. I hear it's the only place in Europe like this so definately a thing to see. Little bit of a hike up the hill but worth it. By no means a hard hike, just be aware it's a walk. Not a bad drive... More

A very interesting place to visit. It's worth the effort of the rather awful country road to get there. In addition to the volcanoes there is a small rest stop at the bottom of the hill selling drinks and snacks. If you don't have a car you can take a bus from Autogara Nord in Buzau and take the bus...
