Wawel is a medival-era fortification complex overlooking the Vistula river. For centuries wawel castle was a residence of polish kings.

The castle is known for it's legend about a dragon which lived nerby. The monster terrorized the whole city of Cracow, until a brave shoemaker by the name of Dratewka stuffed a sheep with sulfur and fooled the dragon into eating it. He immediately felt a great thirst and started drinking from the river. He drank, and drank, and drank until he exploded. The cobbler's reward was marring a princess.
