The Museum of Fire is telling stories about fire and history of Zory, the city in Silesia Region, south of Poland.
During medieval times the city was created inside a forest, which later, had razed. The name of the city was derived from this process, Zar – meaning fire, burn or flames. Bad name brought bad luck to the city, forcing the citizens to fight with fires. The most dangerous one, on 11th of May 1702, destroyed half of a city. To honor this day, Zory is helding a procession every year.
Fire became a base for the design of a museum.
