History says that the mansion belonged to the squire Urlateanu that the built in 1922 atop the hill in the middle of vineyards on the outskirts Urlateiului. The whole atmosphere makes you think at interwar times.

Continue the trip to the Muddy Vulcanoes, in the north hills of Buzau Country. A multitude of cones of different sizes from solid clay comes into sight. Their craters are full with fluid ceramic mixture which, flat for a moment or two, unexpectedly swallows and pushes the remains of our planet's "primordial soup".
