We made it there at sunset and it was magical! It doesn't take long to look around, but it is definitely an interesting experience. I'm sure kids would have a lot of fun! No smoking and no touching the mud - it can be irritating for the skin!

Pâclele Mari (big volcanos) are an awesome place, but Pâclele Mici (the small ones)are much more impressive and not so crowded. Ticket is cheap, 3lei (0.80 euro cents). Enjoy the surroundings, the smell and the noise of the volcano's. You can get at this place only by car and nearby you have a restaurant with delicious and cheap food (payment... More

It's a unique experience and very educative for kids and tourists all over the world as such volcanos are rare in the world.

The view and the road till Vulcanii Noroiosi is so great. At the bottom of the Volcanoes they have a nice restaurant with fried meat, great fresh juices and cold beverages. See first Paclele Mici, they are prettier than Paclele Mari. It is around 2-4 km between them.

Spectacular views, very clean and very good organization. Taxes are 4 Ron for adults and 1 Ron for pupils. Is a restaurant and hotel nearest to Paclele Mari and a restaurant, Hangar, nearest to Paclele Mici.

The nature offered an interesting phenomenon but local authorities invested nothing in this. Going by car to muddy volcanoes is an adventure as there are no signs on the road. Even being Romanian is not easy to access this location. On the other hand there are 2 locations with muddy volcanoes but only one promoted. Why?

They are active but not as active as you might think but the view is fantastic. They are nice but not to nice so you want to go see them again. It is ok for a one time visit if you are in the area.

Unique place! You are feel like as you are to the moon! Very well treat by local people. This place should be more exploatate and to appear in more advertising. Highly recommended!

Interesting and different landscape to see. You will find a regional road from Buzau to Berca village and as you reach it you have good indications to find Muddy volcanoes. Up to there is a lovely road and suddenly you will get to a different world - no vegetation and clay. The entrance fee is very small ( 4 lei... More

If you are not calculating driving time its 5 minutes away from parking (which is free). You dont need hiking equipment only confortable shoes. The fee entrance its 1 euro for adults and 0.20 cents for children and students. There is a restaurant that is very very busy and no picnic areas.
