The miraculous rock formations near the northwest Bulgarian town of Belogradchik did not make it to the final stage of the world's new Seven Wonders ranking.

The Bayor of Belogradchik, Emil Tsanov, announced that the Rocks appeared to be out of the competition after the second stage, the Bulgarian news agency, BTA, reported.

The Belogradchik Rocks were competing with 260 other landmarks from 220 nations all across the world. The global campaign is organized by a Switzerland-based NGO.

The Belogradchik Rocks are miraculous sandstone and limestone rock formations of up to 200 m in height with various shapes resulting from erosion. They form a strip which is 30 km in length and 3 km in width in the northwestern part of the Stara Planina (Balkan) Mountain.

Every single rock is named after a real object that it resembles. The rock range varies in color. The Belogradchik Rocks were declared a natural landmark in 1949. The ancient Belogradchik fortress is also located among the rocks.
