Four must see unusual buildings in Europe!

Steve Buss 17th Jul 2019

by Sonet Mudiliyar

 

I have been doing some research into some of the most unusual buildings in Europe which are all stunning buildings and unique in their own right.

So if you find yourself booking a trip to Poland, Belguim, Czech Republic or Spain – here’s something for you to do!

 

Sopot, Poland

Krzywy Domek is a building in Sopot, Poland. It is 43,000 sq ft, built in 2004 and designed by Szotyńscy & Zaleski. This building that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale houses restaurants, shops, and a radio station. If you find yourself in Sopot – be sure to check out this warped building.

 

Brussels,Belguim 

Atomuim is a landmark building in Brussels, Belguim. It is stands 102 m (335 ft) tall. Its nine 18 m (60 ft) diameter stainless steel clad spheres are connected, so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. It was designed by engineer André Waterkeyn and architects André and Jean Polak. It contains a restaurant and also provides stunning panoramic views of Brussels. Be sure to check this landmark off your list when you visit!

 

Prague, Czech Republic 

The Dancing House is a nickname given to Nationale-Nederlanden building on the Rašín Embankment. The building was co designed by architect Vlado Milunić and architect Frank Gehry. The building was designed in 1992 and completed in 1996.The building consists of nine floors of predominately offices, a hotel and a restaurant. This is definitely a must see in Brussels.

 

Bilbao, Spain

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is of course situated in Bilbao, Spain. The 350,000 sq ft building was designed by architect Frank Gehry. When the musuem opened to the public in 1997, it was immediately hailed as one of the world’s most spectacular buildings in the style of Deconstructivism. It is a combination of interconnecting shapes of stone, glass and titanium. It is completely eye catching and happens to be right next to the water. If you are planning a boat tour, be sure to swing by and check this beauty out!

There you have it, these are in my opinion are some of the most bizarre yet intriguing buildings I have seen. Whether you can appreciate all of their architectural complexities or just simply find them an eye soar – either way it will capture your attention!
