Dancing House, Prague
(3.1/5 based on 1,100+ 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 buildings were dancing the waltz-like waltzing inspired by the appearance of the names of the two sexes dancing building should be called the traditional form and quaint buildings around and it seems to make a jarring, but again that is naturally loaded with atmosphere. Activities in a heck of a lot of cafes and restaurants in the vicinity of the advanced degrees is sufficient.

  • Extra here marched, and at the end then without photo home! Was completely unspectacular! Looked on the photos more interesting. Top we were not, was also already against 19: 00 and we were only in the hotel! There's but a beautiful view of the Castle from the bridge on the other side of the road!

  • It is strange, with part coated with glass (the "dancing") and a "dome" of iron. I recognize that it is only as architectural work (why my score) but it is not the style that I like. The location is perfect, facing the Vltava and night has an incredible lighting. You can access to the building and its terrace, as has a bar. Works also a hotel and saw an exhibition retro very cute, with few objects, among them an auto...
