      According to local legend, during the Turkish yoke one notable Bulgarian Turks fell in love with her and wanted to take her to his harem. However, she did not want to and decided to flee to the mountains. Darting across the bridge, she realized that the pursuit overtakes her, and to stay on middle, was ready to jump into the water. But Turkish riders stepped onto the bridge, saw the reflection of the devil in the water. That stopped them, and they stopped the chase. The girl was rescued safely, and the bridge became known as "Devil."
