The legend about the creation of Zabojsko lake is interesting. They say when the wicked ones ruled over this nature there was a bloody battle for supremacy, in the field where the lake is now settled. The day was cloudy and St Elijah drove his chariots in the sky above Sinjajevina. When he saw the wicked ones, he got furious and and he killed them all with one single thunder. Then he turned the field into a clear water lake “where there are all sorts of fish, to eat it fresh whenever you like." Leaving by his chariot of fire towards heaven, St. Elijah said, "That was FOR-BATTLE (za- boj)", from which the name of the lake is derived.
