Wrocław Rynek’s Sprinkler Dwarf Ready For Summer Heat

Wroclaw's local water authority have switched back on the popular sprinkler dwarf on the Rynek ahead of what is likely to be another hot summer. 

The sprinkler dwarf spurts out water at a temperature of 16°C, giving passers by on the market square the chance to temporarily cool down.

MPWiK have also reminded the public about the city's free drinking fountains, which are located on pl. Dominikański, pl. Solny, ul. Oławska, pl. Grunwaldzki, pl. Jana Pawła II, ul. Naj. Św. Marii Panny and pl. Katedralny.

In recent years in Wrocław, temperatures have regularly hovered around  30°C, occasionally reaching much higher than that. One such example came in 2015, when the Polish Government had to put energy restrictions in place as temperatures reached almost 40°C in some parts on the country.
