The slow eruption of gas and mud from 3km under the surface of the earth creates these volcanos. This is a geological anomoly, it's not a theme park. The volcanoes smell like methane. Free parking, pay for access. The unique nature of these consistent and...More

We came here with our tour guide, it was quite long drive but this is amazing through the Transylvanian countryside and a great experience in itself. The mud volcanoes are quite an odd experience, completely unique and mesmerising. Worth the journey. It is closed if...More
