    Natures' mysteries // In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.

    I'm going to find this place! In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.

I think i might get a little confused if I lived here. Really cool, though! Crooked House, Sopot, Poland

The Crooked House. Sopot, Poland. The facade has a vaguely human face to it and evokes the imagery of Munch's painting "The Scream". The building looks like it is melting in the midday sun and is one of the most photographed buildings in Poland. Inside the building are a variety of bars and restaurants which disappointingly don't heavily reflect the style that the exterior boldly promises.

Huangshan pines on Mt. Huangshan, Anhui, China. Their seeds fall into rock crevices where they take root. The pines grow very slowly due to the poor soil and climatic conditions. A tree less than 3m (9.84ft) high may have grown for over one hundred years or even several hundred years.
