The work of Slovak architects Štefan Svetko, Štefan Ďurkovič and Barnabáš Kissling, in the form of an upturned pyramid, got on the list thanks to its unusual design.

Other absurd buildings include, as the SITA newswire quoted the Business Insider, monuments on the Croatian hill of Podgarić, on the mount Buzludzha in Bulgaria, on the Mrakovica hill in Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as the Makedonium in Macedonian Krushevo and the Monument of Founders of the Bulgarian State in the town of Shumen.
