One of the most picturesque villages located in the Vetrino municipality is the village of Nevsha. An old legend tells how once in this village there lived an extremely beautiful girl named Nyagusha. A wealthy Turkish dignitary fell in love with her and decided against her will to take her as his wife. On the day of the wedding the young girl sacrificed her life to save her reputation by jumping from the high cliff near the village and her veil entangled in the rocks. Local people immortalized this sacrifice by naming the village after the brave girl. Over time, the name changed and today it is called Nevsha.
