(rom: Defileul Duruitoarea) To the east of Duruitoarea village, in Riscani district, the Duruitoarea stream, a tributary of the Ciuhur River, has caved a deep gorge between the rocks of 40 hectares’ area. The steep slopes of the gorge are riddled with caves and grottos and embellished by old rock formations. The grotto Duruitoarea Veche is known as an old human settlement dating from the Stone Age. It is nearly 50 meters long and 5-9 meters wide. It is comprised of three sections. Archeological excavations have identified fossils from the ice age and vestiges of the prehistoric culture that once settled here, which made it famous all over the world.
