Standing in the shade of Wawel Castle馃彴 is a vivid sculpture of Wawel Dragon 馃悏that faces the Vistula River and spits fire from his mouth every now and then.馃敟馃惒

Recently, the dragon has a lovely visitor, a fire-breathing sheep馃悜 made of LEGO bricks will accompany him until Christmas.馃巹 How does a sheep become friends with a dragon?

Though they seem like great friends, the fact is that they are both the main characters in the legend of the Wawel Dragon. Legend has it that a young smart shoemaker defeated the evil Wawel Dragon that lived in the large cave of the castle with a sheep鈥檚 skin stuffed with hay and sulfur to protect local people from being eaten. Today, the Wawel dragon became a symbol of the city and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Krak贸w, especially for children.
