This paper attempts to analyze the features of the representation of the dialogue of cultures in the book series "The Witcher Saga" written by contemporary Polish writer A. Sapkowski at various levels from mythology and folklore to intertextual and historical references in it. The fantasy genre, in which the "Saga ..." was written, is considered not only as a purely literary phenomenon, but also as a mass culture phenomenon. The work also touches upon the issue whether 'The Witcher Saga' belongs to Slavic fantasy or not from the points of view of the author of the cycle and literary critics.
