Kashubia - region of beautiful lakes and green forests

Kashubia (Polish: Kaszuby, Kashubian: Kaszëbë) is a language area in the historic Eastern Pomerania region of northwestern Poland. The region is home to the Kashubian Lake District. 
Kashubia is a wonderful place - according to the legend created by God, through the intercession of Angels and with the help of the Griffin.Legend has it that during the creation  of the world God left a large sandy area, scanty in forests and lakes, in which there was no life. At the request of His helpers, the Angels, He looked in His magic bag to check whether He could give something more to this place, and by tilting the bag He provided the previously-barren Kashubia with numerous green forests, beautiful meadows covered with flowers, rivers and lakes with water so pure that one could see in it like in a mirror, and fields with soil so fertile that every year it produced abundant crops. To make sure that nothing would disappear from such a wonderful place, God sent the Griffin to guard this land and protect it against any harm (source: pomorski.travel).
