Great fairytale for small children as well as adults. The funny, adventurous, humorous and poignant story of an ordinary young Slovak who has tremendous power, but also a generous and courageous heart. As in many Slovak folk tales, the hero sets out into the world to seek happiness, overcomes all obstacles and even overpowers terrible dragons. On the journey he not only learns much about the world and people, but he also finds a beautiful princess for a bride.

Running time: 2 hrs with one interval
