We are halfway through the cycle of holiday weekend trips on the trail of the Wroclaw dwarfs. Meanwhile, for those who are still hungry for stories featuring these small residents of Wroclaw, we have prepared a virtual walking tour. We encourage you to try it yourself at any time.

There are some dwarfs in Wroclaw that even in the greatest heat or in the most severe winter exercise their mind (like Educator), physical prowess (like Alpinists) or simply work for their community (like Miller). But there are also those who do not like doing any of these three things. Actually, they prefer to do nothing. We have six such slackers, which you can get to know by going on a long walk from Grunwald Square to Market Square.

The walk starts by visiting Bubble-spiller. This loon spends all his days in the shopping center. Of course, you can find him at his favorite Grunwald Passage. If only he was there spending time enjoying the cinema or gym, but Bubble is too picky. He says that he goes to the cinema just for movies which are set in warm countries, and indeed he appears at the gym to watch the beautifully sculpted bodies. And in this way Bubble spends his days watching and trying on swimming suits. You will recognize him by the diving mask and rubber duck on which he sits.

To meet another loafer one needs to go through quite a substantial chunk of the road to the market, passing over the Grunwald bridge, and through Społeczny Square and Dominican Gallery. At 48 Rynek Street, in front of Pizza Hut, you meet Globetaster. Why does everyone consider him a slob? Well, look how he represents dwarfs – he lies on the ground full of pizza with a spoon next to his fat tummy. The cooks complain about him that since he has been in the restaurant he has never helped in the kitchen. Bah! Even the pots are not washed. Admittedly, the waitresses like him. They furtively fill him with pizza and pasta, but even they admit that since Globetaster appeared in the restaurant, it has become impossible to find all the cutlery.

A little further on Kiełbaśnicza Street, Snorer leads a quiet life. This dwarf prefers a nocturnal life style. By day, he is mostly asleep. You will find his bed at the entrance to the Hotel Patio. There is a rumor among dwarfs that Snorer is not capable of doing any decent work because he was lead down the wrong path by his colleagues – Drinker and Boozer. Apparently, before they met Snorer helped in the hotel with a very prestigious position – he was the concierge – the caretaker of the hotel.

Unfortunately Drinker and Boozer gave him a taste of alcoholic beverages for adults. Snorer liked them too much, and he drinks it mostly at night and sleeps during the day. Drinker and Boozer occupy the entrance to Przedwojenna Bar, 81 Św. Mikołaja Street. Guests love them and so do dwarfs, because they often come to have fun together on weekends. However, the dwarfs would prefer for Drinker and Boozer not only to have merry moods but also some enthusiasm for work. All indications are that the entertainment duo will soon take up work because the dwarfs have arranged a special licensed bartender course for them.

A little further on, at 37/39 Ruska Street, another dwarf who likes spending his time in malls can be found. Couch Potato is located next to the shop Domar, which is equipped with furniture and other accessories needed for the home. Couch Potato sits comfortably on the couch, and when asked about his daily tasks he generally teasingly replies: “I test the furniture’s degree of comfort”.

Among dwarfs you will find one more comfortable lounger. In the vicinity of the north-west corner of Solny Square, leaning back in his chair, there is Dialogomir. This dwarf spends his days with a remote control in his hand. Apparently he is sucked into watching TV series. The result is that Dialogomir does not move from the screen of his plasma television and he probably does not see any problem in this. To all interested he explains that he is just busy checking the quality of the television signal.
