"Gnomes" Wroclaw Things to Do Tip by Ben-UK

Wroclaw Things to Do: 443 reviews and 1,139 photos


Watch out for these little guys :) -- apparently there are 15 of them scattered around the city -- I managed to see only 4 (and photographed only 3) - a pathetic attempt I know ...

It's quite entertaining watching people trying to photograph them too -- the more serious photographers lying on the floor with Nikon zooms carefully positioned ... then a tourist like me comes along and trips over them ....

The gnomes have a bit of history -- in the 1980's they became the signature of the Orange Alternative Movement and a humourous (and safe) way to voice their oppostion to the communist regime of the time.

Next time I must find the others ....

Directions: You'll find a couple of them near the Rynek ...
