Weird Buildings of Europe

I went to Europe last century. They've actually continued building since then. Here are some of Europe's weirder modern buildings. Hat tip CNN.

Krzywy Domek (the crooked house), Sopot, Poland.

I was lucky enough to visit the Bilbao, Guggenheim, museum. The city of San Sebastian, also in the Basque Country, is frankly more worthy of your time. But the outside of the Guggenheim is absolutely unique and, dare I say, beautifull.

Castel Meur. By the way, meur is a Breton word, a language that has nothing to do with French. Like Irish and Scotish Gaelic and Welsh, Breton is a Celtic language still spoken by about 172,000 people in the Britany (Bretagne) region of France. Many Bretons immigrated to Quebec, but the language was quickly lost as the filles du roi mostly spoke Parisian French.

Nationale-Nederlanden Building (the Dancing House), Prague, Czech Republic. I spent a week in Prague at the end of the 90s and I don't remember this building at all (it was completed in 1996). By the way, the non-Euro Czech Republic has some of the cheapest beer in the word (500ml for about $1.50 in a night club).
