Since the Middle Ages, the Serbs have been worshiping St Paraskeve, as the patron saint of fertility. Many miraculous springs,vodice,chapels and churches are dedicated to her. On the days dedicated to this saint, August 8 and October 27, in the monastery of Fenek, the villages Voganj and Beška, as well as the spring on Kalemegdan in Belgrade, the film crew recorded the stories of the people who said that they had been healed by these springs.

Under this layer, one can recognize the cult of the ancient Slavic goddess Mokoš, whose roles have been transferred to this Christian martyress of Serbian descent.
