It was interesting to learn about the narrative of St George who killed a living dragon that resided in the lake. According to the narrative, the dragon had a kidnapped a young girl and was killed so as to set the girl free. Thanks to the tour guides for sharing the knowledge to us.
My active vacation at this place was great. I enjoyed hiking and bike riding. I took long walks in the countryside in the evening while enjoying the evening breeze. The locals were friendly and the local specialties delicious.
I enjoyed the nature, something about visiting a destination with a beautiful lake and wonderful nature around, it gives an otherworldly experience. In addition to the beautiful landscape and scenery the local folklore is something worth listening to. A beautiful place to just visit and relax
very good!!!
