Kaliningrad’s Dancing Forest, Russia

Kaliningrad’s Dancing Forest is a pine forest with trees going on odd and curvy angles and twisted circular loops , it is situated in Russia. Locals call it “the drunken forest”, how did it get so curvy? well it’s a mystery, it can’t be the wind since just several trees are curvy and other near trees look just fine, Unlike the drunken forest in Siberia, it is not caused by melted  ice wedges, Some say it is an old tradition of  woodcarvers which make the trees grow that way so they can later on use them for making  unique wood furniture or ship construction.
