Devil's Town And The Village Of Blood

The locals believed for centuries that they were formed when devils fought for supremacy. In fact their origins are much more down to earth - literally. Take a trip to devil's town, a peculiar place if ever there was one. Devil's Town or Davolja VaroŇ° as it is known in Serbian, can be found on the southern slopes of the Radan Mountains.

The area is steeped in European folklore and it is little surprise that for centuries these naturally occurring erosions were looked upon with fear and suspicion. The Devil's Town is a series of hundreds of stone pyramids and is located in the watershed between the equally frighteningly named Devil's Gully and Hell's Gully.
