Muddy volcanoes are one of the most beautiful places in Romania. The landscape is surreal and we felt like we've just landed on another planet. The volcanoes themselves are quite tiny - max 3 m, but the natural phenomena is extraordinary. All over the place...More

Is a very beautiful site, beware of the muddy explosions if there are any near the mouth of the volcanos. And the smell is not so great if you're close to them

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...More
