my apartment was stolen yesterday (by a swindler)
my apartment was robbed yesterday (by a thief)

Does any sentences above sound strange?
If yes, teach me that and why?

Yes, the idea of an apartment being stolen is an odd one. The phrasing sounds like someone detached it from the others in the building and took it away in the night.

If you say something like "I was swindled out of my apartment" that would make a bit more sense.

Remember that sentences need to start with capital letters.
