Sunny magic among the stones

A unique place with strong positive energy around, recommended to visit the place with a guide. Do not forget the hat, it is really hot in there.

Close to Varna City, this place is worth a visit. Consider 1 hour enjoying the scenery and taking special photos. After paying 3 BGN at the entrance desk, don't forget to have a look at the explanations on the walls before entering.

One of the best spots to visit when in Bulgaria, especially if going to the seaside, since is really close to Varna - just few kms away. From the road it doesn't look impressive but trust me, after paying the entrance fee - just 3 leva - you will be amazed! The white sand makes you believe that you are... More

The place is great, like its from a different planet. Scenes from the Conan remake were filmed here. Its a great natural wonder from pre-historic times when the area was under the sea (not the Black Sea, but a different more ancient sea)

For a stop on the way, 15 min max, its a good stop to see a rather interesting natural phenomenon. If you go after the ticket office closes you can walk there for free.

Somehow, we missed the explanations and the hour program that another reviewer mentioned. We just made a quick stop and there were many schoolchildren visiting so we just wandered around and took photos. Much more photogenic than the petified "forest" in the US that does not look like a forest!

Fascinating natural monument worth the few dollars to enter even in 100 degree heat. If it is dead summer, please remember a hat and LOTS of water. We had 3 small children with us and not enough water in the 100 plus weather. There were a few other visitors there and you need a car or taxi to bring you.... More

Quite interesting, but at the end of the day it's just a bunch of rocks. One is shaped like a large phallus which was exhilarating.

Very amazing and wonderful place. It had a nice and kind man with perfect English to explain everything to visitors. It is an hour program. Mix it with another visiting program
