Why out of the all Unusual Houses I wrote about so far, I missed this one? No idea! But this is long due – CN Tower one of the major landmarks of Toronto, Canada and World!
One of the most famous buildings of my native city Ivano-Frankivsk – Ratusha or former City Hall. Compared to other famous structures of the world, Ratusha is quite young – completed in 1935 and it took almost 8 years to built.
After the story of the pink house was published earlier this year, I received an e-mail that reads as following:
"Hey Marina: Came across your blog, nice to see my family's house THE PINK HOUSE included with such odd and widely spread out property. I am the builder's great great grandson, my family still owns the house and I was just there for a visit last week!
The real story of the house is as or more interesting than the fictions that surround it"
The writer's name is Jay Woelfel and he kindly agreed to share the true story with you, my friends! Grab a cup of hot chocolate (it is COLDDDDD outside) and get ready for an amazing story shared by Jay!
When travelling in Belgium, this is definitely a structure to stop by and wonder how physics has little influence on it and how wild human's imagination could go!
How many times did I tell my son not to climb the walls at home and leave his filthy skateboard outside? Oh, Pierre Andre Senizergues, what have you done?
Did you know that Reykjavik is the most northern capital of the world? And did you know that the Church of Hallgrimur is one of the tallest structures in Iceland? Well, have a look – it is magnificent!
Located in Alupka, Crimea, Vorontsov Palace is one of the most romantic and beautiful places to visit in Europe. There is a lot being said about Vorontsov Palace in numerous tourist's guides, sites, its pictures circulate as postcards all over the world.
I was blessed to spend wonderful 3 month in Alupka when I was 17 – unforgettable times and adventures worth dedicating a whole book to it. I might do it later when my English is not this lame :), but today – only the Palace part.
The most amazing structures were actually built by humankind not as a shelter, but for some other, more spiritual reasons. And Bahai Temple, more commonly known as Lotus Temple, is one of them.
I don't think I would feel comfortable living in this house, but would surely like to visit it one day! Located in Tokyo, Japan this fully transparent house offers lots of sunlight and zero privacy. There are people claiming they have nothing to hide, this is a perfect opportunity to test yourself!
Life would be so boring without some mystery! Here is a great story of one famous building located in Wellsville, New York. Love, death, treachery – everything is here, not to mention the house is just amazing and intriguing without any stories attached. Enjoy!
