There are two different places named "Vulcanii Noroiosi" in this area. One is "Paclele Mici" and the other "Paclele Mari". The little one (Paclele Mici) is far more interesting than the other.

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 !!!
