For the origin of the lake another story is told. Namely, in the place of present Biogradsko Lake there used to be a fruitful field, which was plowed by two brothers. The thrashing floor, on which the corn was sorted after the harvest, kept brothers in harmony until one fall they started fighting over the shares of corn. In the attack of rage younger brother killed the older brother. Crushed with pain their mother cursed the younger brother, and from the strength of her curse, the round broke in the place where the thrashing floor was found, and there the lake was formed which even today keeps the secret.

And the biggest culturally historical monument monastery Moraca is surrounded with a veil of legend. This mystical sacral facility, is surrounded, just as a medieval fortress, with high stone wall inside which the quarters are located which will tell you a few legends from this area. According to one legend that is alive among the local people, this monastery was made from special yellow stone which is amazingly far away from the very locality of the monastery. According to this legend people from this area made a column, which was tens of kilometers long, and in that way turned the stone from hand to hand from the place called Tusine, the place where the stone was located, to the present monastery Moraca.
