Đavolja Varoš (Serbian for “the devil’s town”) is an unusual rock formation created by soil erosion, near the town of Kuršumlija in southeastern Serbia. A local legend holds that the strangely shaped rocks are the remains of a wedding party that was instantaneously petrified by the devil, as punishment.
In total there are 202 stone formations in Đavolja Varoš, between two and 15 meters in height, with a mean diameter of about 1 meter. The stone pillars are topped by stone blocks weighing as much as 100 kg. Two extremely acidic (pH 1.5)and mineral-rich (15 g/l) springs are situated nearby.
