Dragons are mythological creatures that have always stirred the human imagination and are known to almost all peoples of the world. They are regarded as the rulers of the heavens, the earth and the underworld. In some places, they were honoured and are still honoured today, whereas elsewhere they represented a threat from which people needed to be protected.
Thus, it is not possible to answer the seemingly uncomplicated question “What is a dragon?” in a simple and ambiguous way. On the guided tour, we will lift the veil on many of the secrets related to the myths, legends and truth about dragons. What is so special about this mythological creature – which never actually existed – that it found a place in so many cultures, including those that do not have a great deal in common with each other? Or is there perhaps a grain of truth concealed in the stories about dragons?
