Legends about Lake Zirein

The Lake Zirein legend

„Clay from Lake Zirein“
Once there was a shepherd living close to the lake. He wanted to renovate his hut and therefore needed some clay. Suddenly a little man came and ordered him to get some clay from behind the hut. The shepherd knew the area very well and had never found a bit of clay there. He was a bit surprised, but he did what he was asked and really found a lot of clay. He could not only repair his house but also was able to build a new stove.
And the next morning another surprise was waiting for the shepherd. The walls and the stove had turned into gold. The shepherd tried to find more clay, but he wasn't successful any more - "the golden earth" was gone for good.

Enough storytelling for now – visit Lake Zirein and feel the special energy and vibes radiating from this natural gem.
