Wroclaw, Poland

During our recent trip to Poland we visited Wroclaw, a city with a changeable history as it used to be part of different countries and empires before becoming part of Poland again in 1945. The picturesque houses around the market square illustrate that the city was once a member of the hanseatic league. With it’s bridges and islands as a result of the location at the riverside of the river Oder, Wroclaw even passes off as Venice of the north for some. My favourite passtime in the city however was dwarf-spotting. With more than 200 dwarfs around the city – in the most unexpected places – it is almost impossible to spot all of them. Originally installed in conmemoration of the Orange Alternative movement, they have turned into quite a tourist attraction!
