Krakus Festival overview: Krakus refers to the legendary young man (Krak, a shoe maker) who rid the people of a bothersome dragon living in a cavern below their settlement on Wawel Hill. Our mascot has a history that goes back to a time when stories were not written down but passed on by word of mouth from one generation to another. The time has changed our attitude toward that bothersome dragon, and these days, we think of him more fondly. He has become not only a friend but a very important symbol of Krakow and things Cracovian. So, we at the Polish Center have chosen him as our mascot for the Krakus Festival. “Wiwat Smok Wawelski!”
