Natural phenomena

The Mud Volcanoes

Location: in Berca commune, Paclele village, Buzau County.

The Mud Volcanoes region is a floristic and geological reservation and covers an aria of 5 hectares. The phenomenon is due to the natural gas emanations which infiltrate through the crust cracks and in their way out to the surface they involve the phreatic water together with the clay. By successive overflows of mud “lava” structures resembling to volcanic cones result. The vegetation is scarcely developed being represented by species adapted to dry conditions. This is the only place in Romania where a rare plant named Nitraria schoberi appears. This plant is a natural protected monument.
