Did you Know? Poland had the world’s first upside down house
One of our favourite amusing facts about Poland is that it is home to the world's first upside down house. The topsy-turvy wooden home was erected upside down in a forest and appears to be something out of a storybook. Visitors must enter the home through the attic windows and may walk around the furnished interior, which is evocative of Communist Poland in the 1970s, to symbolise how Communist control turned life in Poland upside down. Hundreds of interested visitors have visited the home since its unveiling in 2007, and it is located in the little Polish town of Szymbark, which has a population of roughly 500 people.
