Hi everyone! Next weekend I visited my friends in Krakow and I literally fell in love with this city.The most interesting place for me was Wawel Castle and while we were visiting this awesome place , my friend told me a story about the castle.I searched it on internet and I wanted to share it with you.
Once upon a time, when King Krakus was reigning in Krakow and the Wawel Castle was his residence, people led calm, happy lives. But one day people heard strange noises from the underground of the castle and discovered that a dragon lived there!
The dragon was very hungry and demanded food from the residents. If they didn’t grant them with food, the dragon was simply devouring them. It created havoc everywhere. The whole city was terrified and begged the king for a solution.
King Krakus was scared as well and wanted to stop the madness. He was thinking for quite some time and came up with a competition – whoever defeats and kills the dragon will marry his daughter, princess Wanda and win the crown.
A lot of brave men turned up to fight with the beast, but none of them succeeded. The dragon was becoming stronger and stronger and killed every daredevil that was on his way. People started thinking there was no hope for killing the monster.
And then Skuba, a poor shoemaker, came up with a trick. He decided to use the dragon’s gluttony. He took a sheep’s skin and filled it with hay and… sulphur. Skuba slipped the sheep to the dragon.
The beast ate the sheep. The sulphur made it so thirsty, that it ran to the Vistula river. It drank, and drank, and drank until it exploded!
The castle was totally amazing, but not my photography skills 😦
