Polish Legend of the Sleeping Knights
When you visit Zakopane (southern Poland), one of the first things you will admire on the landscape are the majestic Tatra Mountains. The silhouette of the Tatra peaks simulates the form of a person that is sleeping, and the legend of this mountain is known as "The Legend of the Sleeping Knights of Poland."
A stranger's answer to a blacksmith: "Those knights had been in a deep sleep for hundreds of years and they only would wake up if it is time to fight on a great battle. When this day comes, the earth will move, there will be thunders that would shake the sky, many trees will fall and break, and there would be noises when the Border Mountains will break. On that moment the knights will take their horses and they will gallop to fight for Poland once again."
