Interesting place to visit. You can spend 30 minutes or more. Make sure you don’t miss the turn to Pobiti Kamani. We drove to stone forest from Veliko Tirnovo.

The place is like from another world, very curious rocks, formed around 50 millions years ago. When we visited it the weather was quite cold, but this desert (second biggest in Europe) worth a visit!

The Pobiti Stones are a place near Varna on the old road to Sofia. Unique natural phenomenon for many thousands of years. Pleasant and interesting place for a walk.

I was surprised, how crowded this landmark is. Really popular. It is a bit hard to walk around, since the ground are fine sand. I recommend good shoes or no shoes. Good photo ops if you so desire.

The Stone Forest is definitely a lot nicer than the Wonderful Rocks. We spent 2 to 3 hours wandering around the place as it is pretty big. The landscape is nice and makes for good photos.

Preferably by car as public bus transport is available to nearby village Slanchevo only. From there you have to walk about a mile to Stone Forest. If you won't have a rented car get a taxi. The hotel reception can arrange it... More
