According to legend, during the Ottoman rule a beautiful Bulgarian refused to become the concubine of a local commander. When he humiliated her by forcing her to serve him naked, she killed him, for which she was burned at the stake. As she was dying, two tears flowed from her eyes and formed a spring.
