UNCOUNTABLE LOCATIONSLegends about witches were one of the most common stories in Pomerania region. Almost every village had its own Blocksberg, or ours - Łysa Góra. A large part of these names was so popular that if you look at a fragment of pre-war maps, there will be at least a few Blocksbergs.
Pomeranian witches, however, were not very picky about the choice of place, and although the name suggests that the Sabbaths were to take place at the tops of the hills, in fact, many blocksbergs were just wilderness, swampy lakes among the forests, abandoned meadows at the edge of the villages, and sometimes even seaside beaches. I chose Świelubie for the location of this legend, West Pomeranian Voivodeship near Koszalin, which was full of surplus places connected with supernatural forces - here were the graves of giants, dwarfs 'headquarters, doppelgangers' place of residence, area of Wild Hunting, ponds inhabited by deadly water nymphs. And near the village, on the swamps just behind the gullets of the last farms, there was also a place where the Sabbath meetings were organized by witches. They were called Hexenkessel, the Witches Cauldron.
MY LEGEND ABOUT BLOCKSBERG"These places are always visible even from the doorstep. A dark grove on the edge of the village, rising on a hill where nothing is ever green; an eldritch glade adorned with an ancient pagan altar. There, the cautiously whispered spells burgeon, black magic is born. There, at night, on the blasphemous Sabbath the witches meet and the Dark Lord himself hosts them."
