The gorges of Cheile Turzii (about 2 km in length) resulted from the action of the river Hasdate cutting its way through the limestone rocks of Culmea Petridului mountain. The place has been known since Roman times and is appreciated for its magnificent landscape. The mountain walls on either side of the river are almost vertical and make the gorge look as if the mountain were cut in half. Numerous caves can be found along the course of the river. Archaeological excavations have unearthed tools from the Stone and Bronze Ages. In the Middle Ages the caves were also used by the local population as hiding places in times of invasions by the Tartars.
Both glasses are labeled with the Hungarian name, Tordai hasadék.
