Ljubojno means Love
The village of Ljubojno is a place with a rich spirit, history and tradition, which is mentioned for the first time in a charter of 1337. It is located approximately 2 km east of Lake Prespa, at an altitude of 920 meters. It is spread in the western bosom of the gorgeous Baba Mountain, and Brajcino River runs along it. It is said that love fortifies this village, because at the root of its name the word love is hiding. According to one legend, the name of this place came from the first inhabited taverna owner Ljuba, who was pouring very nice wine. When customers entered the taverna, they loudly ordered "Ljubo, vino (wine)".
Another version of the name according to folk traditions, Ljubojno got its name from the word "love". In particular, a boy and a girl from the surrounding neighborhoods fell in love a long time ago, but due to the bad neighborly relations of the inhabitants of the settlements, the young people could not get married. However, they nevertheless decided to get married and flee. They moved near the river and lived happily ever after. Later, other families moved in the vicinity of the place of the lovers, and because of that, they called the place Ljubojno. It is just one of the stories woven into the history of Ljubojno.
