The monument to the chimney sweep is installed on the roof of the House of Legends in Lviv. Once upon a time, the pipe-collector lived here with his family and, according to legend, he still protects this place. He keeps track of the time and secrets of the city, and also looks at the pavement, in order it would not be stolen, and sometimes he goes to clean the chimneys on his old car, parked directly on the terrace.
