Cracow Monsters – The plot
The main character, a medical student (Alex), meets a mysterious professor and his elite group of students. To his amazement, he discovers that, under the guise of scientific research, the group is doing something completely different. Alex becomes embroiled in a plot that confronts her with the world of Slavic beliefs, ancient monsters and bloodthirsty deities.
The series was created entirely in Krakow and its vicinity. We will see characteristic locations and iconic places such as the Krakow Main Market Square, Grodzka Street, the Jagiellonian University, the Old Jewish Cemetery, Wieliczka, the natural landscapes of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland and the vicinity of the Krak Mound.
The production draws on Slavic and Krakow mythology, it shows the dark, primal side of Krakow. Will the Polish “Supernatural” be another Netflix success?
