nice place

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.

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
