Artist's Description

The legend of Biljana’s springs
The people sang lot of songs for the clear water of Biljana’s springs, but only one legend, retold till today, is connected with the Ohrid row-boat. Once upon a time, in a castle below the lake near Studencista lived a fairy Ezerka, the daughter of grandpa Karaorman. The fairy Ezerka reigned over the lake and disturbed the fishermen. She turned over their boats and returned the fish into the lake. Ezerka was very envious and one day she grabbed the beautiful girl Biljana, granddaughter of grandpa Chun (row-boat). She took her to the castle to play with her. Beautiful Biljana cried all night and her tears turned into springs, later called Biljana’s springs. Grandpa Chun made a big row-boat to conquer the fairy Ezerka. 6-7 men rowed the boat on one side, and only one man lead the boat. The fairy Ezerka could not turn over the boat and grandpa Chun rescued the beautiful Biljana. That’s why this big boat was called “chun” (row-boat), whose form is unique in the world.
