At all times extraordinary natural and historical monuments of the environment have attracted the attention of people and encouraged to explain the reasons for their occurrence. Lithuanian legends tell of rocks brought by living and strong creatures, lakes that can travel or have human traits. Legends are meant to draw attention to the beauty and mystery of special rocks, cities, castles and other objects. Therefore legends are an integral part of Lithuanian culture and folklore. In Lithuanian legends, as in other European legends, the characters find themselves in recurring situations, facing certain challenges that they have to overcome. Lithuanian legends often mention stones. The stones were especially loved by the evil spirits, the devils, so their traces on the boulders are abundant. Legends often mention the devil. His one of the main tasks was to carry or roll stones. But when the morning dawned or the rooster started to sing the devil usually lost the stone. Devil's lost stones are still standing there. (Legends “The Devil's Stone”, “Puntukas”). Moreover, to harm the people and the yield, the devils carried a sack of stones to spread over the arable land. In legends is also a typical situation observed - the collision of good and evil. Characters usually have to deal with mythical creatures. Evil is usually represented by mythical creatures - the devil or the dragon. These characters are mentioned in Italian legends of "Saint George and the Dragon", "The Devil's Column", Romanian "Dragon's Garden", Polish "Legend of the Wawel Dragon". The purpose of the devil and the dragon is to intimidate or harm people. Legends almost always end with the defeat or even death of the dragon and the devil. Other characters, such as giants and soothsayers are also mentioned in Lithuanian legends. These characters have supernatural powers. They help people who get into difficult situations or are exploited, and punish those who are greedy or want to harm others. In addition, legends highlight family relationships. The Lithuanian legend "Hill of Crosses" and the Italian legend "Lake Misurina and Mount Sorapiss" show the unconditional love of a father to his daughter. In legends, a father is determined to do everything for his daughter. Depicting people's various faults is another recurring situation. Greedy, lofty, unassuming characters are punished.
