Have you ever met gnomes? I was lucky to meet these fairy fellows in one of the most amazing cities of the world – in Wrocław, Poland.
I’ve heard so much that Wrocław is the city of gnomes. That’s why as soon as I came there I stared looking for them.
By the way this city is a master of tricks. From one side you can’t tear off your eyes from its beautiful architecture. From the other side your have to be attentive if you want to find little fairy bodies.
They hide all and everywhere: on the walls , near cafes and castles, on windowsills and doors, on sculptures and monuments.
It seems like they’re playing hide and seek with city’s visitors. The only point is that they are always the ones who are always hiding.
They truly adore attentive people; you could see their happy reaction on their kind faces.
By the way a facial expression of every single gnome differs greatly. Every gnome has its profession, character and unrepeatable charisma.
As far as I got it right, nobody knows for sure how many gnomes live in Wrocław. Little fairy creatures are scattered all over the city and people even carry out cute quests: who will succeed in finding more gnomes.
I also don’t know an accurate number, but I found 42 gnomes! My inner child and writer’s soul were dancing and singing!
You won’t believe it, but the first one was waiting for me directly by the door of my rent apparent. It was late night, but I still noticed pretty gnome. And you know what? It was the pregnant gnome reading a book. I’m a mom and kids’ writer. I don’t believe in coincidence, I know for sure that my apartment was chosen with a help of some fairy forces.
Well, let me show you the tiny fairy fellows that stole my writer’s heart!
By the way, this was the second gnome that I met. He was with this cute doggie. Some years ago I had a dog of the same breed. Maybe my doggie sends me a greeting from his better place.
Yeap, these little guys do love gatherings. So you can find several of them in one place.
His palm is always ready for a high five and I’m pretty sure this funny one is ready to share his guitar with you!
This gnome can probably help you if you need some cash!😂
They are stronger than may seem at first sight😊
If you’re tired, you can join these gnomes 😊

That was the last gnome that I met! He gave me a high five and wished me a save further trip!
I’m so happy that I visit Wrocław in winter. It seems to me that snow gave some special charm to the city. I felt as if I dived into a fairytale!
I don’t say ‘good bye!’ to the city.
I do know that a lot of gnomes are still waiting to be found. That’s why: see you soon, charming Wrocław! I’m sure that I’ll be back, because I left a piece of my heart here. That was one of my dreams to see the city of gnomes. Now it came true!😊
Thanks a bunch for your hospitality and a ton of inspiration! I have an ocean of thoughts that needed to transferred into a paper!
