A mysterious forest in north-west Poland has visitors perplexed due to its strangely curved trees.
Over 400 curved pine trees planted over 80 years ago adorn the forest with an almost otherworldly splendour. It is thought that the trees may have been bent out of shape on purpose as part of a manufacturing process long abandoned at the beginning of the Second World War.
"With their trunks all bent the northward, these trees look like something straight out of one of the more uncomfortable fairy tales."
