This monument is placed on the boulevards between the Wawel Hill and the Vistula river, nearby the Dragon’s Den. It was created by the famous sculptor Bronisław Chromy in 2001. The Dzok Dog symbolises dog's loyalty and devotion.


The dog was waiting for his Master to pick him for the whole year (1990-1991). Unfortunately, the men died of heart attack and never came back. Dzok did not want to move from the place where his Master left him and as people saw the waiting dog, they started to bring him food. Eventually, the dog died and people decided to build the monument to 'the most faithful canine friend devotion to his master.'
