The mysteries of foggy Demirdzhi Mountains

Demirdzhi is a mountain range located in the Alushta region of Crimea, Ukraine. “Demirdzhi” translated from the Crimean Tatar language means “smith”. In the Middle Ages, the Greeks called it Funa – “smoking”.

Over time from exposure to wind and water the limestone collapses, forming numerous “sculptures” of the more solid rock. When the clouds are covering the mountains you can see mysterious silhouettes in the fog, which disappear in a moment.
