Problem. Is each Peano continuum a topological fractal?

A compact Hausdorff space $X$ is a topological fractal if $X=\bigcup_{i=1}^n f_i(X)$ for some continuous maps $f_1,\dots,f_n:X\to X$ such that for any sequence $(g_i)_{i\in\omega}\subset\{f_1,\dots,f_n\}^{\omega}$ the intersection $\bigcap_{m\in\omega} g_0\circ\dots\circ g_m(X)$ is a singleton.

(The problem was posed on 16.11.2014 by Taras Banakh on page 3 of Volume 0 of the Lviv Scottish Book).

The prize for solution: A lunch in "Szkocka".
