Jas i Malgosia Houses - Hansel and Gretel, Wroclaw: 5 reviews and 14 photos
Jaś i Małgosia (Hänsel and Gretel) houses are two curate houses connected by a gate that form the picturesque entrance to the former graveyard of St. Elizabeth church. The latin inscription "Mors ianua vitae" (Death, the way to eternal life) led the way. Now the graveyard is gone, but remember while walking to the entrance of the church that the bodies of the executed leaders of the rebellion of 1418 were buried under the flagstones you're walking on.
At some point the two houses got the names of the fairy tale figures Hänsel and Gretel (in Polish "Jaś i Małgosia"). The smaller house from the Renaissance era is called Hänsel, the taller one from the Baroque is called Gretel.
