Davolja Varos, Prolom
(4.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Đavolja Varoš is a peculiar rock formation, located in south Serbia on the Radan Mountain near Kuršumlija. It features 202 exotic formations described as earth pyramids or "towers", as the locals refer to them. They are 2-15 m tall and 4-6 m wide at the base. These formations were created by strong erosion of the soil that was scene of intense volcanic activity millions of years ago. Most of the towers have "caps" or "heads" of andesite, which protect them from further erosion.Since 1959, Đavolja Varoš has been protected by the state and a 1995 decision of the Serbian Government declared it a major natural monument subject to category one protection.A natural spring is located beneath the formations and has a high mineral concentration. There are two springs: Đavolja voda, with extremely acidic water and high mineral concentration, and Crveno vrelo .Đavolja Varoš was a nominee in the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign.

  • "Devil town" natural monument is located in southern Serbian mountains of Radan. Nature reserve and counts to the wonders of the natural world. Up to 15m-high Edrfiguren entschtanden by soil erosion. To visit 2 sources with red water (high iron ore content) and 2 mines in the immediate vicinity. According to the legend there lived people who never thought/done something bad. The devil was not so good and poisoned the water. After the water people drank it i.e. any sense for right and good, and to comb it wanted to marry the pair of siblings. A good fairy who protects the area today still according to legend, tried unsuccessfully to get the wedding party of reason. She asked God to help her to keeps this sin, so God petrified all present. A small church from the 13 th century. renewed you are ascribed healing properties. Paint the visitors with a handkerchief bodies where they hurt, tying the designated tree, after a week, the towels are taken down and buried. Thus, also the pain will disappear. A mystic place for fanciful. A restaurant serving good Serbian cuisine completes the day. Small souvenirs, excellent honey and good liquor on the small stands in front of the entrance available.
