tel./fax:+48 (0) 58 555 51 23

The Crooked House in Sopot was constructed in 2003 and its character has been based on the drawings of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg as well as Gaudi’s designs. The outside elevation of the building fully corresponds to Monciak’s stylistics. The levels of the building refer to the cornices and levels of its neighbouring town houses.

This building is situated in an extraordinary place which is the well known ‘Monciak’ in Sopot. Most of all, this popular walking promenade is a meeting place of the Tri-City Bohemia, people looking for fun and joy. There is a variety of romantic cafes, restaurants, shops and entertainment centres in this area. Looking for a hotel in Sopot? Check out Sofitel Grand Sopot.

Crooked House [Krzywy Domek]

Opened in 2004, the award winning, exceedingly higgledy-piggledy building by Polish architects Szotyńscy Zaleski was inspired by the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and the drawings of the Swedish artist and Sopot resident Per Dahlberg. Arguably the most photographed object in Sopot, Centrum Rezydent's 4,000m2 of luscious curves are topped with a roof of blue-green enamelled shingles designed to give the impression of a dragon. Filled with shops, bars and cafes, the building promises more from the outside than it actually delivers once you've entered. Do as the tourists do and take a souvenir picture before moving onto one of the other choices on the strip.
