The name of the mountain comes from ancient princely times. According to the legend, the wife (according to another version, the daughter) of Prince Sviatoslav Volodymyrovych named Paraskevi was killed near this peak. Sviatoslav was at odds with his older brother Sviatopolk. Brothers had a battle near Skole, and Sviatopolk won, and Sviatoslav, his sons, and Paraskevia were killed. In these region, many place names remind us of those times.
