Stone Forest, Varna

(300+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
At Stone Forest, see natural rock formations resembling animals, frozen fountains, or cascades.The stone formations--mainly between 5 and 7 m (16 and 23 ft) high--do not have solid foundations, but are hollow and filled with sand. It seems as though the pillars are stuck into the surrounding sand. The prevailing theory is that this petrified forest was formed some 50 million years ago while it was still a part of the sea floor. Stone Forest is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Varna Edition.

  • Doesn't look like much from the road but once you get past the turn, you become surrounded by the strange rock formations created millions of years ago. Really interesting to explore the entire site. Best part was it's just two minutes off the highway.
  • Most amazing place in Bulgaria. Incredible natural phenomen. It's for sure must see. Be aeare that it is open 24/7 without entrance fee.
  • Wonderful place.....can't wait to visit again
