Cool building

One of a kind architecture - very cool but can't go in and nothing explain what or why. I think it's just offices

Dancing House was on my list of things to see in Prague and I made special effort to walk all the way from my hostel (it's far trust me) to this attraction only to find we couldn't really go in. It was cool to see it but a little bit disappointed. Luckily Charles Bridge was nearby 5 mins walk away... More

Best viewed from a river cruise ... originally named after and inspired by Fred Astaire and Gigner Rogers and later named just as Dancing House.

Frank O'ghery's representation of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in a building is not only very modern but beautiful. Using his usual rugged, modern architecture with new materials and forms in my opinion gives a new life to beautiful old city Prague. Toped with a beautiful designed bar and sitting terrace out of the the top floor of the building... More

Right along the Vlatava is the building complex by Gehry known as the dancing house. Very interesting look. Try to stop by at various times of day to appreciate the way the look changes. Busy intersection, within walking distance of the old town and Charles square. There is also a cafe.

Went and had a coffee at the top of the Dancing House. Well worth our effort. Lovely coffee and a wonderful view. The toilets were especially interesting with sexually themed art and art sculptures! It gave us a good giggle...shock tactics!

Like it or loathe it, the design of this building on the south-western side of the Old Town certainly makes it a talking point. I love the asymmetry of the windows on the main facade. The ground floor gives access to a decent exhibition space over three floors which is currently hosting a retrospective of a Czech comic artist known... More

Worth at least a coffee on the terrace (up the lift then up the stairs) for the wonderful view of the river. Restaurant (just out the lift) not very cheap but good service and food.

Nice neat little visual diversion. it's at a busy intersection near the river and not much else around other than the building. we didn't go inside but from a distance is where you want to see it. Not worth a special trip but not too far from a tram stop.

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.
