This story, which cannot be, took place in Prague. One drunken peasant was returning home in the evening and drowned in the river Chertovka. And turned into a Vodyanoy. Since then, he wanders the streets of Prague, goes to beer bars, and those who treat him with beer can be presented with fresh river fish. I think that Vodyanoy in his walks around the city may well be accompanied by a muskrat, which, as it turned out, can also be found in Prague near the Charles Bridge.
