The town had a beautiful girl named Dojrana. She was in love with the shepherd boy Labin. One day, on the town square, all the young ladies and bachelors were gathered. There were Dojrana and Labin.

In that moment, Dzemo comes and grabs Dojrana, and wounds Labin with saber. Dojrana, of great anger and hatred towards Dzemo, jumps from his horse and rushes towards Labin. Though wounded, she manages to drag him to the lake and not to be trapped by Dzemo, the drowned in the lake. Since that tragic event, the lake, according to the legend, is called Dojran Lake and the own is named Dojran.In that moment, Dzemo comes and grabs Dojrana, and wounds Labin with saber.
