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.

Bit of a drive to get there but worth it - our whole family loved it. Fun to watch the bubbling mud and to explore the ridges (wear good shoes with grip).

In the World are two places like this One in Romania, Paclele Mari, and the second one in Azerbaidjan. It's amazing to see how the earth is "breathing" throgh several holes, and all these area it's look like Mars. It is about 100 km from Bucharest, a must see place if you are in the area.

A must see place for nature lovers. There are more places you can see the volcanoes, Paclele Mari and Paclele Mici you can reach with the car, for the Volcanoes from Beciu you need a a jeep. A lot of nature sights around the volcanoes, but lot of them you can reach only by feet:(.
