LEGEND ABOUT BEAUTYFUL OLIMPIA


Stanisław Boner had a beautiful daughter. A young knight Stanisław Kmita fell in love with her. Althought Olimpia loved him very much and wanted to marry him, her father didn’t want to hear about their love and he was strongly against their marriage because Kmita was a Cathoilc and Boner was a Protestant.

The war broke out and Kmita went to the war but he promised to send lettes to her. Boner found out about the letters and he ordered the maid to give the lettes to him. Olimpia and Kmita couldn’t understand why they didn’t get any letters from each other.

When Kmita retuned from the war he sent another letter to Olimpia and waited for her on a high rock. Unfortunately, Boner took this letter, too and he told the maid to write the answer form Olimpia, that she was going to marry another man. When Kmita received the letter and read it, he jumped off the rock and died.

When Olimpia found out about his death she also jumped off then castle tower and died. Now she often appears there in a white dress.
