Black ambulanceAre there, nowadays, such stories which fascinate us all? Stories which we all can remember and share? Is there something like “the 20th Century folklore”?

Do you remember the Black ambulance, which travels round the city kidnapping children? This one and other stories, gossips, rumours, and speculations prove that legends and other traditional genres do not cease to exist. They just change their forms and adapt to new circumstances in order to stay true. For who can still believe in the legends of villains, fairies and hidden treasures these days…?

Become familiar with the legends from the words of specialist, PhDr. Petr Janeček, author of many publications and story collections. It’s suitable for lovers of black humour, morbid stories and elderly gossipers. The evening will be accompanied by musician Marek Piaček, co-author of a unique project “Urban Songs – variations on Genius loci”, inspired by the texts written by Egon Bondy. Šrámek sisters will provide food for strong stomachs. The new research project of urban legends of Žilina and vicinity as a specific form of city memory will be launched.

Admission: 2,00 / 1,00 € (adults / students)
