Master Twardowski


Every day, at 1:13 pm and 9:13 pm, a window opens in the tenement house in the Old Market Square no. 15, where Master Twardowski appears in a smoke haze, whooping with laughter. According to legend, Twardowski arrived to the city on a rooster (other stories claim that he arrived to the Old Market Square in a chair). After his arrival to the city, Master Twardowski headed to the “Zgorzelec” Inn, where along with his servant Maciek and devils – Smołka and Węgliszek – they stayed and met with customers. When news spread across the town that the Master knew magic, there was always some nobleman or townsman asking him for advice or help. One of them was the Mayor, an older gentleman who had a very young wife. He had a hard time keeping up with her. Thus he asked Master Twardowski to rejuvenate him. The Master, assisted by devils, prepared an extract from magical herbs, in which he bathed the old man. After several hours sitting in the pot, he emerged out of it a much younger man. Unfortunately, after coming home, neither his wife nor any of his servants recognized him.
