Fire-breathing dragons and other frightening creatures

This travel starts from the legend of “Saint George and the Dragon”. The dragon stands for evil and asks for young girls in sacrifice. The dragon is a horrible and violent monster who terrifies people and keeps the whole city under siege. Only a brave knight can defeat him and restore order and peace. A very similar situation is present in the Bulgarian legend “The Pirin’s dragon” and in the Romanian legend “Dragon garden-2”. The travel continues around Europe with the Lithuanian legend “Neringa’s conquest” and the Polish legend “legend about Wawel dragon”. Every country has at least a legend featuring a dragon or another terrible creature. The outcome is always the same: good prevails over evil and the monster is defeated.
