Geocache Description:

Smok Wawelski / Wawel Dragon

[PL] Kiedy okrutny smok zamieszkal jame na wawelskim zboczu, w grodzie krakowskim zapanowal strach. Bestia pozerala zwierzeta i ptactwo domowe, a im wiecej jadl, tym wiekszy mial apetyt. Kiedy zapasy zywnosci sie skonczyly, smok zaczal pozerac ludzi. Zmartwiony wladca kazal oglosic w calym miescie, ze osoba która zabije smoka otrzyma w nagrode reke jego pieknej córki. Wielu smialków próbowalo usmiercic smoka, lecz zadnemu sie to nie udalo. W walce ze smokiem poleglo wielu rycerzy. Zmaganiom uwaznie przypatrywal sie pewien szewc Skuba. Po kilku dniach wpadl na pomysl: kupil barana, wyjal z niego wszystkie wnetrznosci, a skóre obficie nadzial siarka i smola. Tak przygotowane zwierze podrzucil przed pieczare smoka, który zwabiony zapachem baranka wyszedl z jamy i szybko go polknal. Nagle poczul przerazliwy ból - ogien zaczal palic jego wnetrznosci. Smok podszedl do brzegu rzeki i zaczal pic wode. Jego brzuch stawal sie coraz wiekszy i wiekszy, az w koncu pekl.

[ENG] In a cave near the Vistula River lived a giant fire-breathing dragon. He was a veritable nuisance to the local inhabitants because he not only loved to devour their cattle - also he devoured humans. The news of the dragon`s nasty habits spread all over the country. Many knights came in an attempt to slay the beast, however, none was successful since it burnt valiant fighters before they could draw out their swords. Ruler the city promised to reward the dragon slayer with his daughter`s hand. Many tried, nobody prevailed, until the one day when a poor shoemaker appeared before the king and volunteered to kill the horrible creature. Skuba knew that he did not have any chances in a one-on-one battle. Instead he came up with an idea to poison the beast. He decided to prepare a special dish for the dragon - a sheep stuffed with tar and sulfur. At dawn Skuba placed prepared sheep at the cave's entrance. The dragon greedily devoured the sheep. Soon he felt like his stomach was on fire. The fiery feeling was so intense that the dragon stood on the bank of the river and started to drink water. Nothing seemed to help the dragon kept on drinking more and more. His belly grew bigger and bigger since he kept drinking until he blew up in a powerful explosion.

[PL] Na pamiatke tej legendy w roku 1970, u podnóza Wawelu postawiono pomnik Smoka Wawelskiego.

[ENG] In memory of this legend in year 1970, in the bottom of Wawel was founded the Wawel Dragons monument.
