Today we will present you some of the most bizarre buildings in the world, standing out with an unusual shape and ambitious design.

The crooked house, Poland Krzywy Domek

The crooked house is an irregularly shaped building in the center of Sopot in Poland. Built in 2004, it covers an area of ​​about 4,000 square meters and is part of the Rezydent shopping center. Krzywy Domek's architecture is borrowed from the paintings of the famous Polish artist and illustrator Jan Marcin Szanger and his Swedish colleague, the artist Per Dahlberg.

The building itself is designed to look like part of the architecture of the surrounding buildings, but at the same time to give the impression that it has begun to melt. With its unusual appearance, the building in question quickly became one of the biggest landmarks in the city and the most photographed building in Poland. The crooked house is popular among tourists not only for its interesting appearance, but also for its restaurants, bars and shops.

The stone house, Portugal

The stone house, which was built in 1974 and is located on Mount Fafe, in northern Portugal, is strikingly reminiscent of the home of the Flintstones. The bizarre house is built between four huge stones joined by a concrete mix.

The prehistoric design of the home annually attracts thousands of tourists and makes the building one of the strangest buildings in the world.

The Dancing House, Czech Republic

The "Dancing House", also known as "Fred and Ginger", is located in Prague, Czech Republic and is an incredible masterpiece of architecture, characterized by a specific charm. The building's nickname comes from its specific line, which resembles a dancing couple - in this case the famous Ginger Rodgers and Fred Aster.
The building was built in the period 1992-1996 by architects Frank Gehry and Vladimir Milunich. Its modern silhouette visibly contrasts with the historical landmarks of the city, and the authors themselves define the style of the building as "new Baroque".

Museum of Contemporary Art, Brazil

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro, is one of the city's most famous and significant landmarks. The museum looks as if it was brought here from another planet. In fact, the building is the work of Oscar Niemeyer and Bruno Contarini and was built in 1996.

La Pedrera, Hotel Spain

This building, also known as Casa Mila, was built between 1906 and 1912 in Barcelona, ​​Spain. The building was specially designed for a married couple by architect Anthony Gaudi.
The six-storey residential building does not have a single right angle on the outside or inside and is surprisingly much like a short rock formed by water jets. It is also compared to a stormy sea, and according to critics, it is the plastic embodiment of the diversity in nature that Gaudi adored.
