This upside-down house in Szymbark, Poland, is reportedly the first flipped house in Europe.

Built in 2007 at the foot of a hill, this strange-looking log cabin was created to showcase the uncertainty of life during the country’s communist regime. The two-story structure is built tilted on purpose so guests can climb through an attic window to explore the home by walking on the ceiling.

The interior is furnished to imitate the 1970s, when Poland was under communist rule. It’s part of an educational experience.
