Prince Gvidon smiles shyly as the beautiful swan princess invite the viewer to marvel at the wonders of his island kingdom. Bags heavy with emerald nuts and golden shells groan before the squirrel who constantly offers more. A band of magnificent knights rise from the whitecaps to greet visitors and protect the island. Even the city itself was the work of the swan princess, who is another wonder, being a legendary beauty who fell under a wicked spell.
