"Dragon Legend Comes Alive"

The legend of the Wawel Dragon is a renowned story in Polish culture since centuries. The story goes that the deadly dragon living in a cave terrified the kingdom of King Krakus, by wreaking havoc upon locals and destroying the villages. According to some versions, the dragon was slain by King Krakus's sons, while in other versions, a shoemaker executed him and married the princess. The dragon's statue at the foot of the Wawel Hills, facing the supposed den of the mythical creature, is an interesting way to remember this legend. The 6 meters (20 feet) tall bronze statue stands on a boulder and is programmed to breathe fire out at regular intervals. A popular tourist attraction in the city, the monster statue is well liked by children and lovers of folk tales.
