“BLACK MOLFAR HUNTING”
There are legends from a long time ago, and there are also new ones, but no less mysterious and unique. It is said that once there was a house where famous Molfar (magician) lived. According to local beliefs, there are good and evil magicians. This Molfar was unique – he was both good and bad at the same time. He had an interesting hobby – to joke around and organize different pranks and amusing riddles. For a long time, no one could build a house there because the spirit of old Molfar was constantly present and “abused” people: he could hide some building tool, or close person in a room without letting him go … Old people say that there is an old legend. Once Molfar said: if there is a man or few people who agree to solve all his mysteries riddles and endure all “bullying” then this person will receive a huge gift from him, therefore the magician would be able to rest peacefully and no longer joke around with poor people.

“FINDING GOLDEN LION”
The plot of the quest is based on ancient legend of the golden treasure of Lion’s city and where to find it: it’s known that once there was a map with location of the treasure but eventually, for reliability reasons, it has been cut into many pieces and hidden, as stated in one manuscript, “somewhere around Lviv lions”. Many treasure hunters were digging the area and even overturned poor lions, but it was useless … This led to some inconvenience for citizens. There was a rumor that it was just a beautiful legend that had no real basis and then over some time “gold fever” abated. Lviv city council even issued a special law that obliged to preserve the peace of Lviv lions.
But everyone is still searching for places where there are lions left or their possible location in the past. Some officials, under the guise of repairing the streets, dug them while personally watching the workers, in order them not to find some pieces of the map accidentally and take it to themselves. But all the searches were not successful.
