The legend of the Iron Wolf
Centuries ago the Grand Duke of Lithuania, Gediminas, had a dream about an iron wolf standing atop a hill. In the dream, the wolf had its head raised toward the moon and was howling as loud as 100 wolves.
Gediminas had the dream interpreted by a pagan priest named Lizdeika. Lizdeika told Gediminas that the dream meant he should build a city in the spot where he saw the wolf. The priest went on to explain that the howling of the wolf represented the fame that the city would have far and wide.
The Grand Duke immediately started to build the city in the location he saw the wolf. That city would become known as Vilnius.
Fulfilling the legend
Lithuania, Vilnius in particular, has had an eventful past that has brought a lot of ups and downs, but it seems that in the last 10-15 years Vilnius has started to bring the Iron Wolf legend to fruition.
