Wroclaw's Dwarfs, Wroclaw

4.8
Commemorating the Orange Alternative underground protest movement, Wroclaw's Dwarfs represent protest in a fun way all over the city. The Orange Alternative protest resisted the authoritarian communist regime through absurd acts, such as installing a dwarf statuary, which made it difficult for the police to arrest people as protesters. Over 300 dwarfs populate spots throughout the city, which today represent many different marginalized groups. The city's tourist office offers maps and smartphone apps marking all the dwarfs' locations and providing an ideal way to tour the city, since the tiny sculptures stand near major sites and attractions. Keep your eyes open for the jolly "tourist" dwarf, your very own representative. Plan to see Wroclaw's Dwarfs and other attractions that appeal to you using our Wroclaw road trip planning app .

Where to stay in Wroclaw

The best way to visit Wroclaw in style but without breaking the bank is by planning your visit for the weekend, when many hotels within a stone's throw from the old town offer discounted prices for their finest rooms. Close to the city center you can also find many economical guesthouses, which provide access to common cooking and dining areas, and often offer bicycles for rent. The area north of the old town caters to university students; its good-value hostels are an ideal choice for budget-conscious travelers.
