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.

We take a tour to Stone Forest. They are great and it's really interesting to take pictures here. We have a guide who told us more about this place and it's great that this was a bottom of the sea.

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.
