Bilian’s water springs in Ohrid

MagazineHistory destinationsBilian’s water springs in Ohrid

Legend has it that in a castle just above the Ohrid lake,once upon a time lived a fairy named Ezerka. She was the mistress of this lake and she was upsetting the anglers very often. She would return their fish into the lake and capsize their kayaks.

One day the bad mistress kidnapped a girl named Billian. She was a granddaughter of a man known as grandpa Chun. The girl cried day and night and as the legend says those tears turned into a water spring. Grandpa Chun made a kayak,which the bad fairy couldn’t capsize and that way he saved his granddaughter.

So those water springs are named after her and right next to them there is a big kayak that was named in his honor-Grandpa Chun’s kayak.
