Just a house

I don't understand why it's so famous place. People say it's look like a dancing boy and girl.For me it's just glass house. May be I just not understand modern art.

This was near our hotel and we walked past it several times. It helped us to find our way back. Worth seeing if you're passing by.

This building is so different from the rest of the architecture in Prague. It was designed by a Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. Definitely worth stopping by even if you're not in the area -- Prague is so small that you can easily fit this in if you're in town for a few days.

This building literally looks like the building is swaying! ( or dancing). A must see in Prague. Such an unusual sight not seen in many cities. The art gallery( paid to go in) on the ground level shows exhibition of modernism ( in line with the theme of the building!) Grab a drink at the rooftop bar. You can see... More

Didn't actually visit this for anything specific, but it was close to our apartment. Very creative, albeit strange architecture. There further away you get, the more you see the dancing

It's nicknamed "Fred and Ginger" and it's an office building. Known in Czech asTancici dum this building vaguely resembles a pair of dancers. There is a highly-rated French restaurant on the roof with magnificent view over the Vltava river. The French cuisine has a lot of seafood and meat dishes .The restaurant is called Celeste

This building looks awesome from the outside but make sure you take the lift up to the top floor too (for free). There is a very reasonably priced trendy café/bar at the top with great views, if you have a drink there you can also go out to the viewing platform to get great views of the city.

Visited as our son was studying it for his architecture degree assignment. Outside is interesting and unique but it's definitely worth going inside to appreciate the building fully. The sky bar is one of the nicest we have visited and was not busy as expected. From here you can go out onto the roof and experience panoramic views of city.... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
