The Lake Prespa is located on the tripoint of Greece, North Macedonia, and Albania. It is a system of two lakes separated by an isthmus, the Great Prespa Lake, divided between the three countries, and the Little Prespa Lake, mostly within Greece. They are the highest tectonic lakes in the Balkans, standing at an elevation of 853 meters. The area contains three national parks, one in each country.

There are many local legends that try to explain the creation of the two lakes. According to one of them,

there was a Fairy that fell in love with a local prince and she became a princess. When her beloved prince was lost in a battle, she was so sad that she cried rivers of tears, and the two lakes were created.

This myth inspired some of our students to create the following stories.
