This is a natural rock structure located on the road between Varna and Sofia. A collection of these several formations covers a huge area of 7 square kilometres. These formations are about 7 metres high and 3 metres thick. But they do not have any solid foundations. Inside they are hollow and filled with sand. The origin of this phenomenon is still being studied by experts. Some say that it is the result of a coral activity. Other say that it is the weathering of rocks that was responsible. Whatever may be the case, this place is an absolute wonder to behold. You might feel like you a part of a fantasy film. Highlights include:

  • The Dikilitash group- It is in the best state of preservation.
  • The Strashimirovo group
  • The Karierata group- It includes man-made outcrops.

Stone Forest, Varna Reviews - Write a Review

  • A desert in Europe? Yes - here in Bulgaria you can see a real desert with really interesting naturally made from stone columns. You have to pay 3 BGN to enter the main part. Easy reachable by car - 2 minutes from the highway.

  • 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.

  • Very beautiful place. But it's a desert, so wear appropriate shoes.

  • It's a quiet place without a lot of traffic, which makes it perfect if you want to escape the crowded nature of the city. The view is amazing and there is a lot to see. The place is brimming with a positive vibe and is just waiting for you to experience it.

  • Amazing piece of natural wonder. Awe inspiring place. It is believed to be 50 mil years old.
