Wrocław (Breslau) Dwarfs – Family trip
Wroclaw is the city of over 1000 years of history. For centuries, it has various names: Wratislavia, Bresla, Breslaw, Breslau and currently Wrocław. It may be difficult to pronounce the name of the city, thus easier name has been invented – Wroclove, because you will not only remember its name, but also fall in love with it!
Our trip proposal is not only for history and architecture lovers, but also, if not specifically... for kids.
There are more than 500 Dwarfs figures placed all over the city. They are not more than 30cm high and quite difficult to find. Each Dwarf has its own history, but the idea has roots in communist times. The Orange Alternative, based on surreal slogans, was an illegal form of protest. Thousands of people used to come to its happenings, to mock the absurdity of everyday life in communism. The Dwarfs, started to be painted on the walls by Waldemar Frydrych, became a symbol of Orange Alternative.
At the present the new little sculptures are appearing in the city, and contribute to its modern history.
