Dancing House, Prague

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • One of Frank Gehry iconic buildings. A must see if you are a fan of his work. You can only admire it from the outside.
  • We were here for Prague designer week. The space is too small and very crowed, hope I could see more designers and spend more time with their art piece rather than been squeezed by the crowd. Building itself is great, very unique.
  • The restaurant serves good food, for alright prices, with a great few over the city if you get good seatings (you can reserve such a place when you expect it to be busy).
  • 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.
  • Suggest skipping the museum, paying 100 CZK for a drink at the top yields the same experience for a cheaper price. (It is mandatory to spend at least 100 CZK for access to the outdoor terrace) Overall the view is stunning and the building itself is something worth seeing.
