Wroclaw's Dwarfs, Wroclaw

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
Commemorating the Orange Alternative underground protest movement, Wroclaw's Dwarfs represent protest in a fun way all over the city. The Orange Alternative protest resisted the authoritarian communist regime through absurd acts, such as installing a dwarf statuary, which made it difficult for the police to arrest people as protesters. Over 300 dwarfs populate spots throughout the city, which today represent many different marginalized groups. The city's tourist office offers maps and smartphone apps marking all the dwarfs' locations and providing an ideal way to tour the city, since the tiny sculptures stand near major sites and attractions. Keep your eyes open for the jolly "tourist" dwarf, your very own representative. To visit Wroclaw's Dwarfs on your trip to Wroclaw, use our Wroclaw trip itinerary planner.

  • Lovely way to spend time walking around wroclaw, discovering all the small funny statues of dwarfs.Great activity for kids 
  • 200+ gnomes and other interesting sculptures around the city to keep you interested whilst wandering around. 
  • It was incredibly cozy with the gnomes. The kids were excited every time a new one was found. We came out on a detour because we kept finding gnomes and now kids think it's fun so then we followed after.
