Dancing House, Prague

(3.1/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Aptly named Dancing House is one of the more unusual buildings in the city center, a modern glass structure surrounded by Gothic and Baroque architecture. Designed by architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry, the curvy glass tower appears clutched against a more upright structure, making the combination look like a pair of dancers. Nicknamed the "Fred and Ginger Building" after the celebrated dance duo, the building caused controversy in the 1990s, as some critics felt it did not accord well with the surrounding architectural styles. Visit the top floor, which houses a restaurant and offers views stretching all the way to the city's famous castle. By using our Prague holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Dancing House and other attractions in Prague.

  • The dancing House designed by the Czech architect Vlado Milunić together with Canadian architect Frank Gehry is well worth a visit. Beautiful architecture on the outside but be sure not even to go inside if you go to the glass bar can you on the terrace with a beautiful view over Prague. This costs 100CZK but you can also click on the terrace if you drink something in the glass bar then you will not need to pay the price of your drink just 100CZK e.g. 55CZK for a Coke. There is also a pair of binoculars on the terrace (without coins so free to use)

  • This original building was designed by the Croatian architect Vlado Milunic, located on one side of the Vltava River in the Nove Mesto, City Center can be reached by tram 17, inform you that your subscription for all public transport costs 310 czk approximately 12 euros for three days, 110 czk amounted to little more than 4 euros for a day and 32 czk per 90 minutes. Originally named Fred and Ginger building in memory of the famous pair of dancers. Nothing great, but still a must for anyone visiting the city.
