Then we learned there is a whole trend of upside-down houses all over the world. The Upside Down House is a project created by a Polish businessman and philanthropist named Daniel Czapiewski, and is located in Poland in the tiny village of Szymbark, and here are a few pics with this house. The handstand practicing house was opened to the public in July 2010, and - as reported by the owners of the "Pirateninsel Rügen" - with great success. The house is also meant to be a profound statement about the Communist era and the state of the world. The upside down house is a new addition to the indoor playground Pirateninsel Rügen.
