Bacchus? Who is this?
Bacchus is the god of wine and a symbol of Zielona Góra that is closely connected with winemaking. As the legend says, after Bacchus’s death, the drops of his blood sprinkled our land, and thus, made it the furthest north wine region. Currently, Bacchus has even its own monument which dates back to 2010 and is located in the very centre of the pedestrian area. The appearance of this monument gave birth to the creation of the next sculptures which form the Route of the Little Bacchuses.
Ciekawek, Beczkus, Transportikus…
These are only a few names of the Little Bacchuses. In Zielona Góra, there are over 60 such figurines situated mainly in the pedestrian area. They are hidden in the corners of the city and welcome adventure seekers. A walk in search of the figurines provides a nice opportunity to explore Zielona Góra!
