The story of a brave Giewont.

The world was once different. Big water flooded our lands. In the depths of the various creatures lived. He was and dragon. At one time married to Magura. With that love came into the world their children, and there were a lot of them. They had six sons: Hawran, Muran, Garluch, Krivan, Voloshin, Giewont. They had also daughters Swinica, Zolto, Niebieska, Skrajna, Posrednia and Zadnio.
When the children grew up, called them good mother Magura and asked who they want to be in life. Hawran said the fisherman, Muran - bricklayer, Garluch - singer, Krivan - blacksmith, Voloshin - a shepherd, Giewont, the youngest and strongest of the brothers, he said: - I will be a knight, to my brothers and sisters live in peace. I will defend them.
Giewont brother, Krivan, who was a blacksmith, it stung for a beautiful armor. Giewont the enclosure walls stood and saw to it that some evil is not approached.
A sister as a woman. Swinica near pastured pigs, Zolta and Niebieska clothes for men sewed. Skrajna, Posrednia and Zadnio were preparing meals at home.
Osobita was the most charming and flirtatious. Mesh to let go and beautifully peasants laughed. Boys advocated to her, but she was waiting for Prince Charming. One night she dreamed that he came from the north. I only looked that way in the world.
Frost was a king, ruling the North Earth , and the pale Lady Winter was his mistress. Frost King learned about the beautiful Osobita. He sent messengers to her, but the walls stood Giewont once they passed the time. Messengers severely beaten, and even the bones broke and threw the wall. Frost King became angry Giewont and decided to take revenge.
- We need to take him down, he will be with us for the bad – said Frost to Lady Winter.
Plotted for several years, though Giewont overcome deceit, force to take it because it was impossible. Until invented way. Winter is beautifully dressed in white clothes and started pretending to flirt Giewont, cheating that she loves him. A woman can do it, a lot of the male mind is lost. Giewont was also a man, and at the sight of a beautiful and flirty heart Winters struck him hard enough to thunder in the mountains.
- Oh, my dear, the most beautiful, come to me.
Giewont just waiting for an invitation, he began to coax to Lady Winter.
Thus flirted together. And then cunning Frost froze the land under their feet Giewont, frosty ice imprisoned him in chains. At the moment, just waiting for the soldiers of Frost. Giewont knocked over, just as if he had to go to sleep. And there was a strange thing, Giewont fell asleep. With his brother Giewont beautiful sister Osobita cried, streams and lakes filled with her tears.
Frost King asked her to marry him, but she refused Osobita. But Lady Winter was a compassionate woman. Wrapped sleeping knight a white cloth with snow flakes. And so the knight Giewont sleeping quietly and looks at Zakopane.
