Dancing Houses

⬅️⬅️⬅️ Without doubt Amsterdam is best-known for its historic step-gabled dwellings. Sooo exquisite and I could not get over those ornate gabled facades.
The city's canal house gables come in a variety of different styles, but these are my favorite set of house because of their crooked shape. They do appear to dance, hence the name Dancing Houses.

The 'Dancing' comes from how they lean gracefully, which happened as the stilts they were built on settled unevenly over the centuries.
