At 70 Hoża street you will come across a small tenement house with tall chimney. Its unusual appearance means that locals call it the doll’s house. A hundred years ago, the building housed a chemical dye factory. With the expansion of the city, the house became surrounded by high tenements blocking access to light. To heat the tiny building, it was decided to add a tall chimney to it, giving it its current, original look.

Visit the narrowest house in the world
In a narrow gap between the tenement houses on the corner of Żelazna and Chłodna Streets is the narrowest building in the world. The house, owned by Edgar Keret, a writer from Israel, has everything you need to live and work: a bed, desk, light, shower, toilet and even an oven. You can visit Keret’s House when it is open on selected weekends of the year.
