Wrocławskie krasnale - Wrocław’s dwarfs

The first statue of a dwarf in Wroclaw was created in 2001 as a tribute to the playful Orange Alternative resistance movement that was active in the 1980s.

From 2005 the city is inundated with smaller ones (20-30 cm) and at the moment there are more than 600 spread all over the city. There seem to be legal and illegal dwarfs.
A dwarf festival takes place in Wroclaw every September.

Nowadays the dwarfs considered a tourist attraction: You can combine sight-seeing in Wrocław with "Hunting for dwarfs". Special brochures are available with a map and mobile application software for smartphones.

Lars and I have photographed quite a few, but not nearly 600.
For some dwarfs of Lars you can link to www.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Poland/photo1591055.htm

This time two pictures with de interaction between children and dwarfs and one with a collage of various dwarfs we found in the city.
