Walking through the forest near the village of Ostrovačice (near Brno), you can stumble upon a town of gnomes.

They appeared on Wednesday, June 21 when several activists asked to local residents to “free” their garden gnomes and resettle them in the forest – the natural habitat of these fabulous characters.

Together they went to the forest and meadow to build houses to equip the life of these characters.

Many of the hard-working volunteers, dressed in costumes of dwarves, and have been accompanied by a local musical group. The event has been really appreciated, especially by children.

“It’s great that someone organized such an event. The kids were really happy,” said a local resident.

The organizers plan to make this event a tradition. The next one is planned on Autumn.
