The Dancing Forest

I was always a little bit scared of forests, especially dark ones, but here is the forest which could be considered as one of the creepiest forests in nature. It is located near Coronian Spit National Park in Kaliningrad, Russia. The curvy shape of trees was cause this fores got it’s name, Dancing Forest.

If you look closely you will see that almost every single tree there is curvy and pretty unusual shaped. The first thing I was thinking about when I saw those unusual trees was bonsai. Yes, they look like they could got their weird shape via bonsai techniques but local residents do not know anything about such thing.  This phenomenal forest was also the subject of the number of scientific studies in order to reveal the reasons of such behavior of trees in this particular area.
A few of different theories came out, one of them says that those weird shapes could be formed by strong winds, however, the true reason of this phenomena still remains unknown and that is what makes this Dancing Forest so interesting, attractive and mysterious.
