We construct in the paper two examples of Aleksandrov spaces A with curvature bounded above, which possess a pathological properties. In the first we give a CAT(-1)-space A, which is homeomorphic to , while its hyperbolic boundary in Gromov sense is not topological manifold. This construction is much simpler than in corresponding example of Davies-Januszkiewicz. In the second A has curvature and entropy dimension (around some point) strongly more than (equal) topological and Hausdorff dimensions.
