The mud volcanoes of Berca (Vulcanii Noroiosi) are a unique natural spectacle near the town of Buzau in Romania. The mud volcanoes have been around for thousands of years and were declared a nature reserve in 1924. Near volcanoes, the soil is sulphurous and salty, so only a few plants survive here and the area looks like a huge mud meadow with small and larger volcanoes constantly emitting gases. The nature reserve consists of two parts, Paclele Mari and Paclele Mici. From a small viewing platform you have a beautiful view of the landscape, which seems to be out of this world.
