Povest o Okurovi
Kedysi davno vladol nad uzemim, kde sa dnes nachadza obec Brekov a zrucaniny jeho hradu, bohaty a pysny pan menom OKUR. Ten na prechadzke lesom stretol krasne dievca Barko, ku ktorej zahorel cistou laskou a zobral si ju za manzelku. Oproti starej osuchanej chalupe, odkial pochadzala chudobna dievcina Barko, postavil Okur pysny hrad, nazval ho BARKO a podaroval ho svojej neveste. Hradne zrucaniny aj dnes este stoja a pozeraju do vod Laborca, ako pamatnik zaslej slavy a dokaz tejto prihody.

Keska je priamo na suradniciach.
