Devil's town in Serbia 2

The cold wind blows and whistles through the strangely shaped stone pillars in Djavolja Varos every night, making visitors shiver because they still hear the screams of demons somewhere.

Djavolja Varos in Serbian means `devil’s town`.

This large land has a total of 202 vertical stone pillars, described as pyramids with a height of 2 – 15 m, the base is 4 – 6 m wide.

Serbia is a landlocked country in southeastern Europe, located on the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkan Peninsula.

According to indigenous people, stone pillars protected by helmets can be dissolved by water erosion, but will then quickly return to their original shape.

In addition, when the wind blows through the gaps in the stone pillars, they create strange sounds, sometimes like howling, sometimes whispering like a devil’s voice crying.

Many legends revolve around the formation of this strange rock field, the most famous is the story related to the three worlds of Gods – Demons – Humans.
