There is an anti-communist protest behind the dwarfs in Wroclaw; it is called the "Alternative Orange" movement ; it is a humourous way of protesting against communism.
The first dwarf was displayed in Swidnicka Street, where the anti-communist movement used to gather. Since then many different dwarfs have appeared; some of them are displayed in front of shops: they represent traders such as butchers, fishmongers, hotels and restaurant managers, others are represented on wheelchairs to raise awareness on disabilities. Want to discover them all? Visit the tourist office: there are many interesting brochures about what to know about them and where to find them all.
The Penitent Bridge (Mostek Pokutnic) is a footbridge between the two towers of Mary Magdalene church at the height of 45 metres. According to the legend, one could see the ghosts of young women, who, instead of taking care of their homes and children, preferred to party with men. As a penitence, they had to cross the bridge between the towers.

To admire a unique collection of neon lights at dusk, go to the following address: "Ruska 46c" where the old neon Reklama factory is located.

Wroclaw, with its many vegan friendly bars and restaurants, is really a perfect destination for animal advocates. Where else in Europe would you find a place dedicated to the memory of animals? Jatki was formerly a street lined up with butchers’. You can still see the channel where the blood of animals slaughtered for their meat flowed.
To atone for this past, Polish artists have installed the bronze statue of a pig, a goose, a goat and a rabbit in honour of the million animals who died there since the middle ages.
