The Muddy Volcanoes

Natural Attraction


Pischia, Romania


A rare natural phenomenon, the muddy volcanoes, are easy to find, on the exit from Pișchia to Fibiș, being positioned in a unique crater which cannot go unnoticed.

Although at first it seems as though the water and the mud are boiling, they are, in fact, very cold, and the gases emerging to the surface from the ground are also cold.

The gas released in the atmosphere can cause those who are more sensitive a slight dizziness.

When it rains, the crater fills with water, and the volcanoes become spectacular.

The elders in the area are coming here to relieve their rheumatic pain, putting their feet in the muddy water.
