I have been to The Stone Forest - Pobiti Kamani on the 1st of January, in a short trip by car from Balchik. I knew about this place from TripAdvisor and from a travel blog. I used a GPS map but it was easy to find the spot anyway. On that day it was no entrance fee but probably the... More

We visited Pobiti Kamani (how they call it in Bulgarian) on a winter morning last 2011 and it gave mixed feelings. I was amazed to find a piece of desert in this area of Varna as we stand there in our parkas looking at the wonderful natural stones in front of us. Cool!

This is a MUST SEE if you are in Varna or Bulgaria for that matter. It's a natural stone phenomenon (not ruins) located about 20 minutes west of Varna. As you're driving you will see brown signs with binoculars for Pobiti Kamani -- very east to get to. When we visited no one else was around and there was no... More

Great place to visit for something completely different. My husband and I enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and though we were only there about an hour or so we enjoyed it very much. And we have some great photos to remind us of our trip there

It's a must see if you visit Varna. Very close to the town, by highway, 12 km. It's a unique place from what I have seen in Europe so far. Those stone formations look out of this world, and actually are, being created a few millions of years ago by micro-organismes on the bottom of an ancient sea. There is... More

It is like out of this world, the stone forest has its energy and attraction. There is a nice shop with plenty of souvenirs and polite staff. Make sure you park your car by the main road for safety reasons.

This really is a magical place ! Make sure you take time to hug a stone or two and feel the energy there then sit in the wishing circle for 5 minutes and feel it flow through you ... it's magical and leaves you feeling very peaceful and happy inside. Even our children could feel and loved the place. You... More

This place is just really neat. It looks just like historical ruins from some forgotten empire, but winds up being natural Limestone formations.
