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:(.

On my first trip to Rumania my boyfriend had the brilliant idea to take me to the Vulcani noroiosi. I was really excited because I have never experienced anything like that before and my expectations were high! We parked just by the Vulcani and had to pay very little money to get "in" and walked up a little hill to... More

It worth taking the trip if summer or at least not rainy! Surely something different for Romania. The road from Bucharest is good also. If it rains make sure you buy a pair of plastic boots (the cheap ones) and you can go on top of it as I did! I didn't have any problem with anyone allowing us to... More

We planned to visit here on our way to the coast and booked accommodation accordingly. We also added a few hours drive to our journey. Unfortunately when we arrived it had been raining so we weren't allowed to visit the reserve. With the larger site, we were told this straight away. With the smaller one, we had walked 0.5 km...

Interesting and unique place. It looks like Mars:) There is also a place where you can eat, right at the entrance of the site.

Extremely rare in the world, the Muddy Volcanoes give the area a lunar tone and form fantastic images in a scenery taken from another world. The Muddy Volcanoes are miniature craters which are formed because of the natural gas that comes from a depth of more than 3000 m. It lies on about 30 hectares and is a unique phenomenon... More

The scenery is making the trip worth taking. It's interesting especially if you did not see any volcano. Nice for taking pictures and have a short walk

I was amazed by this place, didn't expect that it would remind me of Island with its mysterious colors, barren and crusty soil and sulphur odors.. It is underrated by the Romanian tourism industry and I think the road there should be more clearly marked. Beware that there are two neighboring locations (3km in between ) with various forms of...
