What's described as the "world's thinnest house" has opened in Warsaw, Poland.

How thin? How about 47 inches (120cm) at its widest point. It's wedged above an alley between two other buildings.

The house is home to Israeli writer Edgar Keret, but will also be used by other artists.

It features an extremely small kitchen and bathroom.

Check out this video as seeing is believing.
