Meet the Trovants, misterious stones that MOVE, GROW & BREED

These misterious living stones called Trovants, are said to be moving from place to place overnight, in spite of their size (some stones are as high as 4-5 meters!). The legend sais that no one should either take home or sell a Trovant or badluck will forever follow him ! (and you know, there’s a seed of truth in any legend …)

So take a deep breath and book a thrilling “Trovants discovery trip” with us.

I wish to go there!

Product Description

Nature never stops to amaze us , and the Trovants stand as just an other proof for that.
These misterious yet beautiful stones standing in inexplicable positions are the subject of local legends that say that the rocks change position and come to life at night, that they are able to move, breathe and reproduce (oups ..)

Once you approach the area, there’s a feeling like from a different world, a wierd sense of stepping into a forbidden area. Niel Armstrong must have felt something similar when approching the Moon. Leave your imagination fly and you’ll start seeing not just some unusual rocky formations, but dinosaur eggs or UFOs.

According to local legends, these Trovants can apparently move at an average “speed” of 2.5 mm over two weeks time, some would swear that they “breathe” (strange sounds were recorded as coming from within the rocks), so much so that some did not shy away from calling them “inorganic forms of life with a conscious of their own”.

They are supposed to be formed about 6 million years ago in a sand stratification and cemented by limestone waters. We find them nearby a small Romanian village, in the Valcea county in southern Romania.

They seem to be the oldest and largest in the world, maybe also the reason why they were included in the UNESCO natural heritage and the whole area is now a Natural Protected zone.
