She was waiting for her beloved one, who was far away, first in the army, and then serving on the Venetian galley.Her stepmother arranged to marry her off to some other suitor, but the maiden persisted on staying faithful to her love. From that reason, she left her home and hid in monasteries.; One day, on a crag by the sea, near Budva, she met the man she was supposed to marry. He wanted to take her away, but, in her heart, there was only one true love. Having nowhere to escape, she leapt from the crag into the sea.When she could not be with the one she loved, she did not want to be with anyone else. From that time on, the crag has been known as the Maiden Leap.
