Wejher founded Wejherowo on May 28, 1643, according to the city's website.

He was an aristocrat, a military leader, and a part of the Holy Roman Empire's nobility.

But after a recent snowfall, people noticed the statue transforms into one of film's most infamous villains — Darth Vader.

City officials pointed out the resemblance last week on the city's official Instagram account.
