Long Description:
About Dwarfs project:

The basic parameters of the appearance of the Wroclaw dwarf were established by the first five dwarfs set up by Tomasz Moczek as part of the implementation of the promotion strategy of the city of Wroclaw and were maintained during the implementation of subsequent ones by artists associated with the Wytwórnia Rzezby studio.

Dwarfs have become an attraction of the city - special tours on the trail of dwarfs are organized and brochures are issued for tourists who want to combine finding new figurines with visiting Wroclaw. An application for Android smartphones was also created to facilitate the search for gnomes. Artistic groups organize happenings both inspired by municipal institutions and organized spontaneously by artists. They are also a tool of social campaigns, as well as the subject of theater plays and cabaret festivals.


Not a day goes by for a Florianka standing at ul. Swidnicka was not touched by human hands.

No wonder - he is the first chimney sweep among dwarfs and he will bring happiness to everyone. When passing by, do not forget to grab the button - yours or his chimney sweep uniform.
