Another gem in this beautiful city.

This small square is hidden, but make sure you visit it. Find the dwarfs here and feel the tranquility in the church.

These two cosy buildings connected by an arc, occupy one of the corners of the market square and became one of the city's symbols. The citizens called them after the characters from one of fairy tales. The crossing between the houses leads to the church of St Elisabeth and to the entrance to the Wrocław dwarfs' underworld :-)

Such an interesting thing to see, houses serving as walls! Very picturesque and interesting. Such a nice photo opportunity. Also you'll find around 5-6 dwarfs around.

One could just stare at these skinny houses for hours. They are the last remains of what used to be a series of houses surrounding St. Margaret's Church.

Not all houses have names and these two, located in the corner of the market square, have both names and a lot of charm. There's a nice pub in the cellar of Małgosia (with the same name).

2 lovely houses (appropriately) dwarfed by the huge, ornate buildings around them. Very quaint, and one was the place of the copper-worker until the 1980's.

It's a very charming corner in Wroclaw market place. Besides the House there is the church that deserves an inside visit because of their modern vitral Windows.
