Pobiti Kamani (The Stone Forest) – natural phenomena near Varna

The natural attraction Pobiti Kamani (The Stone Forest) is located in the western part of Varna plateau  and it consists of cylindrical stone columns fixed in a small desert. The stone columns have porous surface and rise to an altitude of 5 – 6 m.

They are built of limy sandstones, containing many fossils – nummulites, mussels, snails. The majority have a smaller or bigger cavity, some are horizontally cracked. The cylindrical stone columns form several groups somewhere between the town Beloslav and the villages Strashimirovo, Slunchevo, Banovo and Povelyanovo with a total area of 50 000  sq.m.

The first impression is of a ruined temple but scientists have discovered that it is a geological formation of stalagmites some fifty million years old.
