Legends, fairy tales and stories have always depicted the history of the nation and taught what is good and what is bad. Saturated with the elements of wonder and uniqueness, the magical powers of objects and places, they have similar meanings in different countries. Objects can also convey energy, emotions or other properties - when a character needs the help of supernatural forces, ordinary objects take on such meaning. Therefore, objects constitute a source of material values for people. The heroes of legends dream of having magical power to help them get what they desired. Objects are a kind of testimony of the nation's past, affect history and act on the imagination. People are very attached to ordinary things because they are proof of their possessions and without them they feel deprived of miraculous properties. Objects, however, differ in European legends in their specific meaning, but the general sense has remained the same. Some of them are an inseparable part in human life, others only represent some symbols or hidden desires of the characters. Since ancient times, every object evokes different associations. But there are many that we associate unequivocally, especially in legends. Similar significance is given to places that in the analyzed legends are not only of magical significance. These are beautiful landscapes, wonderful forces of nature that we can admire these days. In addition, there is an element associated with the aesthetic sense, sensitivity to beauty, because the wonderful landscape impresses modern tourists, and the beauty of nature is obviously explained by the creation of a legend. The fact that places that still exist today in European countries are associated with the legendary environment proves the impact legends have on us. We have the rise of the names of the mountains in Polish legends, as well as places where figures, objects, and monuments centered around the main plot of the legend are located, such as the Inn ‘Rome’ from the legend of Twardowski. The action of legends is most often concentrated in natural places, such as forests, river banks, rocks, underground of the mine, where culture, new urban or professional environment could develop. Also forests considered to be magical and mysterious places, because there, e.g. in Romanian legends, e.g. fairies appear. Many legends revolve around caves, picturesque lands, hills and mountains. Darkness and darkness of the caves are usually associated with evil and wickedness. Mountainous and rocky landscapes are often found in legends especially Bulgarian. Typically, this motif occurs in conjunction with side motifs, such as a cave, i.e. a place referring deep into the earth, associated with the underground treasury or hard work of a miner. So it seems that in legends we can focus on a magical place, less on objects that reveal their unusual power rather in fairy tales.
