23 November 2009 2 Comments

legenda-piatra-teiului “Piatra Teiului” Rock or Lime Stone is located at approximately 44 km north-west of Bicaz in the perimeter of Lake Izvorul Muntelui. This rock is a natural monument and the place where is located is also known as “Coada Lacului” (the end of the lake). The rock is 23m height and both because of its shape and its location is a well known tourist attraction in Neamt County.

The locals call it the Devil’s Rock and they also have a few legends associated with the formation of the rock. The most common one says that the rock is changing place each night and when the devil comes to sit atop of it, all the animals become silent and all the fires from all the surrounding houses go down. Another legend speaks of an ogre that steals girls from the nearby villages and takes them on top of the rock where later he transforms them into stone pieces with strange shapes.

    “Stone” in Romanian language means “piatră”. Check “Piatra Teiului Stone” and change it because it is incorrect.
