A2Z 18

R for Rarog. In Slavic mythology (in particular Ukrainian, Czech and Slovak), the Raróg (Russian: Papor) or Raroh is a fire demon, often depicted as a fiery falcon. In Czech folklore, a raroh can hatch from an egg that was incubated on a stove for nine days and nights, and can appear either as a fiery falcon or a dragon. In Polish folklore, the rarog is a tiny bird that can be held in a pocket, and can bring people happiness.
