One legend says that the lake was created by the tears of shepherd Paul, who shed many tears while watering his flock. And some say that the lake is in fact the rest of the Pannonian Sea. Water is today totally fresh, but there are stories that say that it used to be salty and that it was extracted soda from it.
The lake was formed in ancient times as the groundwater, although the water from the lake mainly comes from rainfall that filled the valley. Water flowed from the surrounding terrain by washing sodium chloride, and so the lake became salty.
