One popular tale from Polish folklore is the Wawel Rooster, originating in Kraków. The story follows Skuba, a humble cobbler who devised a plan to defeat the dragon Smok. Skuba offered the dragon a sheepskin filled with sulfur, causing the creature to drink from the Vistula River in search of water. The dragon’s insatiable thirst caused it to perish, freeing the city’s inhabitants. To commemorate Skuba’s bravery, a golden rooster was placed atop the Wawel Cathedral.
