Sopot

The Crooked House

more than a year ago
Opened in 2004, the award winning, exceedingly higgledy-piggledy building by Polish architects Szotyńscy Zaleski was inspired by the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer (1902-1973) and the drawings of the Swedish artist and Sopot resident Per Dahlberg. The most photographed building in Sopot, Centrum Rezydent's 4,000m2 landmark is topped with a roof of blue-green enamelled shingles designed to give the impression of a dragon, while the remarkably curved walls and windows make it one of the most striking buildings you’re ever likely to see. Filled with shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes and offices the building disappointingly promises far more from the outside than it actually delivers once you've entered. It does come to life as night falls, thanks to the mass of bars and clubs inside, and you’d not be wrong for thinking that it got its name because of the state of the people falling out of it in the early hours. Keep an eye out for the wall of fame on the ground floor where Polish celebrities have left their signatures.
