I have a confession to make here - the gnomes were the main reason I decided to visit Wroclaw. The fact that these cheeky chappies can be found on every street corner was just to much to resist! When I finally arrived, much of my time was spent attempting to locate all three hundred gnomes. The placement of the gnomes started as a protest when Poland was under the Soviet regime and has never stopped growing. They can be found all over the city involved in a variety of activities and add a fun factor to the city.

When you walk around Wrocław, Poland; keep your eye on not only for your surroundings, but also the street level. Wroclaw is a city of little people, krasnale in local language; 300 of them and counting.

Keep your eyes peeled when you're in Wroclaw's city center: Gnomes are everywhere. Little statues of gnomes are tucked all over and the architecture and beauty of the city starts to take second place as you find yourself gnome hunting. It's a fantastic way to see the city and really encourages visitors to notice the details. I had more fun trying to track these little guys down and yeah, it may be a bit gimmicky but I really did enjoy myself.
