The legend from Krakow tells that there was once a Jewish wedding on Friday. During dancing and rejoicing the guests forgot about the Sabbath and they did not stop the wedding dances. Because they desecrated the Sabbath – suddenly the whole wedding collapsed under the earth. After that there was a Jewish graveyard in that place for a long time. Until today it remained a small, fenced and empty area in the middle of a Szeroka street in Krakow.
