Fascinating Phenomenon
Sep 2020
This place is amazing! Cheap entry free & well worth it.
There are information board inside the shop/ticket booth in a number of languages, and on the back of the tickets are stone symbols correlating to the 'named' rocks (you need to use your imagination for some!) The staff working there are really helpful and spoke about the history & provided some information about the stones.

There is debate about the origin of the stones, but generally accepted that this was some form of ancient sea. It is located in the only desert in Eastern Europe (and one of 2 in Europe overall). There are a number of stones and you have free reign to wander around. Understandably there is zero shade so sun cream & water is pretty essential!

We (group of 4 adults) spent around an hour. One of the party has mobility issues relating to uneven ground & dizziness but found the site fairly accessible, there are some steps & sandy ground/rocks so not suitable for wheelchairs etc.

Worth a visit to see this unique phenomenon, not seen anything similar in the reat of my extensive travels worldwide.

A must visit

Extremely interesting place that is worth visiting if you are in Varna. The stones are natural geological formations, and are not made by human hands

Super 3 hrs gettaway from a cloudy beach day
Jul 2020 • Family
Looking for something to do when you are bored or the weather is not that good for a beach day? Take a trip to this beautiful place and see what Nature can do. Went with my two boys, 10 and 3, and they like it very much. Look for the parking lot, dont stop near the road!

Mysterious place!
Feb 2020 • Family
Stone forest is a mysterious place. It was probably a lake million years ago! Very interesting also to little children. I will come again with other friends and families.

Interesting Place but must have guide/ info with you to have knowledge about the place
Dec 2019 • Friends
Great site to visit and when we came here didn’t have to pay any entrance fee. Not sure if any difference with season as we came here during winter. If you don’t have guide or information or locals with you. You won’t understand the story behind but a great place to visit for a quick walk.

Strange Place - interesting phenomenon
Oct 2019
If you want to see it, do not drive by too fast or you miss it. We saw almost no signs. Only few people in October. No entrance fee, but also no guide who could explain. Best read Wikipedia about this natural phenomenon. Surprisingly large field. With fog in the rising sun, really weird atmosphere.
