About the Upside Down House Istanbul
Turkey’s first upside down house was built in Antalya back in 2016, where it attracted more than 30,000 visitors in just 10 months. This unique concept quickly gained attention and today, we have one more in Istanbul.
When you first visit the Upside Down House Metrocity, you may be shocked for a brief moment after you realize that everything you are used to seeing on the ground is on the ceiling. Children are especially amazed by this house as some of them even think they are actually walking on the ceiling as they tour this small, exciting place.
The best part about Upside Down House Istanbul is taking funny photos with your friends and family. People often take photos of themselves acting like they are actually hanging from the ceiling, and you can create the same effect by simply flipping the photos you take.
