The Upside-Down House

Upside-Down House, Szymbark, Poland

This structure was built by Polish philanthropist and designer Daniel Czapiewski to serve as a constant reminder of "wrong-doings against humanity" and the backwardness of the world. Poland's former Communist rule inspired the project, as Czapiewski thought all decisions being made at the time were detached from reality. Tourists have waited for as many as 6 hours to get into the two-story crooked and upside-down house, which features furniture hanging from above. The workmen finished building it in 114 days, despite taking constant breaks to quell nausea and dizziness. The bizarre design regularly leaves visitors feeling seasick as well.
