The Cracow DragonIf you visit wawelcastleyou can't miss the flame-blowing dragon in front of it, or the cave it's guarding. But how did Krakow get this most magical of mascots? Read the whole story of a deadly dragon and the brave young man who vanquished him.
It was some hundred years ago in the time of Prince Crac - the legendary founder of the city of Cracow
Virgins permanently disappeared from Cracow and really nobody knew exactly what had happened with them.
But one day the Cracow inhabitants found out that a fire-breathing and dangerous dragon lived under the Wawel Hill in a dark den
And as you can imagine Prince Crac said: "Whoever kills this dragon, will marry my beautiful daughter!„
He took a sheep fur, filled it with pitch and sulphur, sewed it up and laid this false sheep in front of the dragon's cave.
Very soon the dragon became incredibly thirsty because of the pitch and sulphur burning in his throat and belly. For this reason the dragon ran fast to the Vistula shore and began to drink a lot of Vistula water.
And the dragon drank so much water that he finally burst with a loud bang. In this way the city of Cracow was freed from the evil Wawel Dragon.
And as you can imagine the shoemaker got his promised reward - he married the daughter of Prince Crac.
