THE LEGEND OF FORMATION OF THREE LAKES

THE LEGEND OF FORMATION OF THREE LAKES

Škalar is a lake monster, that has dug holes in the valley of Šaleška, from the begining of the 15th century, and down to the middle of 21st century. His food chain is about two and a half milion years old. Back then, Pozoj – the coal – the lake dragon was hatched from the red egg, which was laid out by a seven-year-old rooster. In the underground lake under the Kozjak hill, Pozoj was laid out and broke the rock. That is how the lake ran into the valley of Šaleška. Kresnik Jurij stabbed Pozoj – the dragon- into the heart with a spear. The dragon`s blood – sanguinis draconis – which flowed from dragon, has turned into a coal. In Škale, therefore, in commemoration of St. Jurij, the largest gothic church is placed. But again, 150 years ago, our new Škalar dragon has appeared. This coal – devours the blood of a slaughtered dragon. Yes, that dragon that Jurij killed and Škalar sank. The church was demolished in 1951 and soon sank to the lake bottom. This was not the last Škalar hole in the valley. He made a new one in the beginning of the 21st century. It is different, this time it made a financial hole with a 1,41 M deep bottom. And the prize question is: Do you know what comes from the dragon`s blood?
