Crooked House, Sopot

Architectural Building Tourist Spot
From the outside, Crooked House looks like something out of a surrealist painting or a cartoon. The colorful stained-glass entrances, stone elevation decorations, and windows framed with sandstone all merge in a warped image of the facade. The inspiration for the building came from the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and the drawings of Per Dahlberg. Notice the curved roof of blue-green enameled shingles designed to give the impression of a dragon. A rather ordinary interior houses restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and a radio station.

Where to stay in Sopot

Sopot provides a good alternative to staying in Gdansk and offers accommodations for every traveler's taste and budget. The luxurious hotels concentrated near the sea provide spacious rooms and quick access to sandy beaches. Comfort comes at a steep price in this part of town, so if your visit involves a tight budget, consider staying at a guesthouse in a residential neighborhood just a short ride from the popular seafront. For more space and privacy, check out Sopot's self-catering apartments.

  • Visited Sopot in June so the trees outside the Crooked House were in full bloom so blocked most of the view. The actual building was very interesting to see but as I said most of it was blocked from v...  more »
  • The crooked house for me was a disappointment - I don't think it is a real tourist place. It just gets missed as it is covered by trees anyways.  more »
  • Lovely attraction to see from outside... step indoors and it's a smelly place with tacky shops and bars. Drains smelt really bad. Would not recommend.  more »
