Drukarz Kacper

Z Głogowa pochodzę, z mieszczańskiej rodziny, wykształcenie zaś w Lipsku, Krakowie i Erfurcie zdobyłem. Sztuki drukarskiej w Kolonii się uczyłem, później na Ostrowie Tumskim zostałem kanonikiem. Lecz, co najważniejsze, to zapamiętajcie: pierwszy druk w naszym języku jest moim udziałem! Drukarnię Świętokrzyską tutaj założyłem, nie tak dawno temu, bo w piętnastym wieku. Dzisiaj sobie siedzę w […]

Ikuś

Krasnali jest wiele… Jedne budzą postrach wyrywając zęby, drugie raczą nas pysznymi pierogami a jeszcze inne uczą życzliwości. Ale nie było wśród nich do tej pory idealnego kupca, Krasnala nad Krasnale co to i meble skręci i dywan rozwinie i strategię podboju Wrocławia w wygodnym fotelu opracuje. Ikuś, bo o nim mowa, pojawił się znienacka. […]

Agora

Agora is an artistically talented dwarf. He paints, sings, sculpts and most of all – moulds dwarves from clay. No wonder he decided to stay near the Agora Cultural Centre.

Dwarfette is really busy, setting the trains off onto their routes. What kind of trains? Our, Human ones, or […]

It is thanks to the Columnists that the Lower Silesian dwarf community knows where and when to help somebody or what matters need urgent intervention of dwarves. First overground dwarves appeared in the city in 2006. Each of them weighs 6 to 8 kilograms. They were designed by an Academy of Fine Arts graduate Michał […]

Świdnicka Street Polers

Rumour has it, that dwarves decided one day to climb the street lamps out of pure curiosity. They wanted to check for themselves how does the world look like when you look from up high. Delighted by the view they stayed and started to inform their fellows of all the interesting stuff they noticed. There […]
