This weird place is called “Crooked Forest”. It is considered one of the most unusual places in Central Europe. The unique forest is located in West Pomerania (Poland) and consists of approximately 400 oddly-shaped pines that are curved near the base at a 90-degree angle.

According to a one theory, the pines were bent by people in 1930 when the trees were young. But still nobody knows who did it and why. Some people believe that the pines were deformed for furniture or shipbuilding, but there is no evidence for this idea.


Oddly enough, every pine in this mysterious forest is bent towards the same direction — due north. There is a wide variety of explanations of this phenomenon available on the Internet — from the effects of energy fields to witchcraft and magic.
