Djavolja varoš (Devil's Town)

Djavolja-varos

One of the new wonders of the world

This natural monument is composed of two rare natural phenomena in the world: clay figures, as specific forms of relief which are very attractive in the area, and two springs of highly carbonated water with high mineral content. These two phenomena taken together make ĐavoljaVaroš (Devil’s Town) a real natural world wonder. The attractiveness of the two unseen wonders of nature is complemented with the surrounding natural environment which depicts it in a rather harsh, almost mystical, and in the same time picturesque and timid way, as well as with the remains of the village, old church, cemetery, and several interesting mining pits. If you want to experience this monument of nature, and unique architecture in the world, in all its beauty, it is best to be there early in the morning or evening, at sunrise or sunset.
