A solitary rock located at the bottom lake Spring Mountain, a few kilometers from the resort Durău, captured the attention and aroused the imagination of locals who have legends woven around her demons, ogres and a bet with God. Some say that this night would change their position, while others believe that the Devil would continue to visit and sit on top of it, when the fires are extinguished, and the animals and birds quiet.

Stone Fucking, located at the bottom of the lake Spring Mountain Bistrita River is a monument of nature with natural reserve status. Rock has a height of 23 meters and is located on a ledge a few feet above the water level. You can see it best when you pass the viaduct that crosses the lake.

Locals have several legends about the Devil's Stone. The first talks about the devil made a bet with God. The devil wanted to gain control over mankind and God persuaded to make a bet with him to achieve his goal. He boasted that he could steal the top of the cliff Ceahlăului and will bring him until dawn. Devil managed to get past the mountain, but while trying to bring heard the song cocks at sunrise, hopefully and dropped it. Still trying to move out of place, say the locals, but fails never more than a few inches. So it came to believe that the Devil stone changes its position during the night, which is explained by specialists as actually an optical illusion created by the increase or decrease water flow.
