Another legend about the lake dates back to the times when the Tatar-Mongol horde marched to the Carpathians, leaving behind death and ruins. Then the local Mr. Barkach ordered a bridge to be built across the Chorny Mochar swamps. Through this bridge, people carried stones and earth, filled the hill and built a fortress. This castle became a salvation for local residents from the Horde invasion. The Tatar-Mongols tried to capture it for a long time, but after long bloody battles, they were mixed with these lands.
However, soon the fortress was captured by a gang of robbers (“twenty-four robbers”), and the brave Barkach was killed by the robbers. The bandit leader Borat fell in love with the daughter of a gentleman from the neighboring village of Kryvyi. The father of the beauty, of course, refused to give his child for a robber. Then Borat got angry and carried out a bloody attack on Kryve at the very moment when the girl was getting married to a local knight. Borat did not spare anyone, all the participants of the wedding ceremony were killed, including young people. All the villagers were killed, and the houses were burned. Since that time, only the Kryve tract remembers that there was once a village in these places. Then the people ran out of patience, they got together and destroyed the den of robbers. Since that time, the settlement above Lake Dyda has been empty.
