Wroclaw General: 76 reviews and 134 photos
Favorite thing: In the eighties ( declining years of communism in Poland) the centre of Wroclaw, especially Swidnicka Street, was the witness of many happenings, which were to mock the authorities. The events were organized by a group called "Orange Alternative" and their leader "major" Frydrych. One of the actions was to paint orange dwarfs in the places where police had damaged anti-communistic graffiti.
In 2001 the figure of the dwarf was placed in Swidnicka Street by local authorities. ( Isn't it a paradox of history?) But there are arguments between Frydrych and the officials, as "Major" doubts whether they have the right to use the dwarf as the symbol in the city's promotion.
