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 Reviews
Stone forest is a mysterious place. It was probably a lake million years ago! Very interesting also to little children. I will come again with other friends and families. more »
Bulgaria has very good places to go. There is no food but still need to be checked from everyone. See you next year more »
Well worth a visit if you happen to be around. Aim to be there about an hour before sunset as the pillars will be most photogenic. There is a small entrance fee of 3 leva. Ignore the talk of "energies", and "one of a kind" of the guy at the ticket booth. Just enjoy the unusual formations.😉
Magnificent place created by nature. Stone formations are more than 50 million years old. If you have time visit this place. There is like a kind of magic in the air.
