We review diverse two-dimensional models emerging on the world sheet of non- Abelian strings in the low-energy limit. Non-Abelian strings are supported in a class of four-dimensional bulk theories with or without supersymmetry. In supersymmetric bulk theories we are mostly interested in BPS-saturated strings. Some of these two-dimensional models, in particular, heterotic models, were scarcely studied in the past, if at all.
