I decided , me and my girlfriend , to go out from Bucharest for 2 days. So, we decided about Muddy Volcanoes. What to say? We have experience in travel a lot without car , only by train or...something else. The real problem of this volcanoes is that this country doesn't know to revealed the potential of tourism. To get... More

A really great, interesting landscape. Great for a geology lesson. Apart from the mudvolcanoes themselves, it's interesting to see how over time rainwater erroded the mud deposits forming canyons, riverbays etc. Unfortunately the place lacks tourist information, apart from a panel at the entrance, there's not really much information provided. TIP: the little mudvolcanoes (Paclele Mici) are far more interesting,... More

It's a special place, as natural space. But it is not possible that such a phenomenon is so little revealed by authorities. On site, there is not information panels about the appearance, evolution and phenomenon. Stefan

I visit the place at least one time per year for cycling experiences. Children love the place, you need high effort for keeping them away from playing with the mud. Enjoy!

I first got to Paclele Mari and the sand and the hills gave me the impression that I was on the Moon, just like Neil Armstrong. At Paclele Mici the volcanoes are not so tall, but they are very active and they make bubbles all the time. It is an interesting place to visit, especially for children, who enjoy the... More

I was there in June 2013, the place looks good quite selenar. I was lucky to be there before a loaded coach of teenagers so I had a few minutes of deserted landscape and peace to explore and photograph. It seems like a different planet, as previous reviews say. Also if it is raining they don't allow visitors inside (or... More

Naturally, this in one of the greatest landscape in Romania, and maybe in all Europe. They are small volcanoes who spit from time to time mud, and all the area is full of mud ( dry or liquid ). And both areas ( Paclele Mici and Paclele Mari, that means Small Mist and Big Mist ) have nice vegetation surroundings.... More

Beautiful and really unique landscape, a must do in Romania. It's easy to reach by car and there is also a restaurant/pension at Paclele Mari, not awesome facilities but really nice staff and acceptable food. Personally I liked more the ones at Paclele Mici ones. Looking forward for an English version of the site and more varied transportation facilities :D.
