Pracz Odrzański, the Washer

Before his last kidnapping, Washer’s life was already full of unbelievable eventsHe appeared in Wrocław shortly after Papa Dwarf. His life is reported to have been full of incredible adventures and dangerous expeditions. He himself is not very keen on talking about it, nor about his unquestionable intrepidity. Not only do dwarfs  admit it but also many inhabitants of Wrocław who recall the flood.

As the story goes, it was the Washer who spotted the danger first. Seeing water level rising, he filled his cap with sand and started the heroic defence of Ostrów Tumski (Cathedral Island) from the flood. He wouldn’t brag about it, though. He chooses to think about his everyday chores. Believe it or not, it’s thanks to him the caps of our dwarfs remained red all these years. Every visitor to the Włostowic Boulevard (Bulwar Włostowica) shall know the silent hero of the entire city is working there!
