Some difficulties to find it, but solved in 5 minutes. Great view. Due to late hour of visiting - nobody there )). Lack of explanatory boards. But overall - great place to wander for half an hour. Absolutely a must .

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!

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.
