Dancing House, Prague

(3.7/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Very interesting building architecturally. Recommended step in the tour of Prague. Shame on both accessible only with drink.

  • Cute, but nothing that ... If you turn Prague walk you will certainly find, is along the course of the Vltava. But don't bother looking for it ...

  • The viewpoint is amazing! Not the best one but still very nice. I recommend come here in the morning so it's quiet and not crowded what I found really nice and calm. Only one disadvantage is that you have to order something in the bar aria to access the viewpoint. I ordered cappuccino and as I'd expected it was frankly awful.
  • It's an architectonique interesting building that is placed besides the river. You can go inside and have a cafe on the last floor and take some nice photos from over there.
  • Good viewpoint in the center of the town! Elevator up in the roof and enjoy the views! Place you should visit!
  • Nice architectural patrimony of the city. Modern and innovative but adjusted to the adjacent buildings. A worth seeing place next to the river.
  • I used the Dancing House as a landmark - I could always find my way back to hostel from there. I love the way it looks. And everyone knows where it is - so makes a great landmark. I did tour the museum - it was okay, but not very impressive. Still, a wonderful sight - which I really enjoyed.
