Dwarfs in Wrocław

I had already planned to post this picture, when both Chris and Malgo asked whether I had taken any pictures of the many dwarfs in Wrocław (Wrocławskie krasnale in Polish). Of course we hadn’t missed them! The city is full of many tiny sculptures of dwarfs, portrayed in many different kinds of situations and costumes. They are all about 20-30 cm and they first appeared in the streets in 2005. Their number has being growing ever since and there are now more than 400 of them and they have become a real tourist attraction. Here are just three examples, found in different parts of the city centre.
