Wroclaw is one place you can’t say I have nothing to do, ’cause even on a cold morning with hardly any stores open you can go gnome hunting and see the town at the same time!
Thats right gnomes. Wroclaw loves gnomes and there is approximately 495 (maybe more) gnome statues located throughout the city.
You can simply walk around and spot them along the way OR download the App (Wroclaw Dwarfs) to see exactly where they are around you. If you spot a new one you can add it onto the App as well. Be warned though its not as easy as you think – they are small, some are on walls and poles, and some in stores/pubs/buildings etc. We went into the University’s Law Faculty building and the post office to find these guys.
Unfortunately it was a very cold drizzly morning and we did not really see much of what Wroclaw had to offer. But the Gnome hunting provided us with something to do this early morning (whilst everything was closed) and we got to walk along the river bank and in between the streets.
So if you find yourself here with nothing to do, try out the App and make a little competition out of it should you be in a big group.
P.s. we found 70 in 2 hours!
