Treznea (Hungarian: Ördögkút, lit. "The Devil's Fountain"; German: Teufelsbrunnen) is a commune in Sălaj County, Romania. It is composed of two villages, Bozna (Szentpéterfalva) and Treznea. These were part of Agrij Commune until 1995, when they were split off to form a separate commune.

History[edit]

It is the site of the Treznea massacre, which occurred on September 9, 1940, during the handing over of Northern Transylvania from Romania to Hungary, pursuant to the Second Vienna Award.
