St. Mary's Church in Krakow.

Krakow. Market Square of Old Town.

From the higher tower of the church of the Virgin Mary, every hour a professional firefighter-trumpeter plays a tune on the 4 corners of the world. This tradition has about 700 years old and is associated with the legend of Heynalists, who warned the city before the upcoming Tatars. Although, successfully closed the gates but the trumpeter was killed by Tatar arrow. In memory of his death - the performed signal abruptly breaks off before the end of the tune.

Nowadays, people sleeping in the summer nights with the windows open, they hear the same hourly bugle call, and instead of rams, they calling the Tatars...
