Turská Rock is a natural monument on the outskirts of the village of Turie. Its massive cliffs and green coniferous trees line the state road Žilina - Rajec, as well as the railway line.

The reason for declaring it for a natural monument in 1982 is the protection of a rare and typically developed geomorphological formation - the "Obtočník" - with a distinct aesthetic and landscape-forming function.

Turská Rock is separated from the dolomite complex of Sunny Rocks, which together create an entrance gate to Rajec. It was formed by gradual cutting of the Rajčianka River into a less resistant filling of the Žilina Basin.

There is no officially marked hiking trail leading to the rock, but you can get to the top without any problems. All you have to do is follow the forest pathway that rises sharply. From the top, you just cannot get enough of views of the village of Turie, Sunny Rocks, but also the peaks of Little Fatra.
