Architecture

Interesting to see from the outside. But doesn't blend well with the rest of Pragues history. Designed by Frank Ghery. Supposed to be Fred and Ginger dancing

If you like architecture, you will really appreciate the Dancing House of Prague. Just keep walking along the waterfront and you will find it nestled on a street corner in the New Town. It is a refreshing break from the medieval architecture.

The building is interesting and different from the medieval architecture you see in Prague. Nothing special, but if you are close to the Charles bridge is just a 10 min walk to check it.

From the outside this building is interesting enough but I recommend going upstairs and trying the restaurant and bar too. We had a fantastic meal at Ginger & Fred and went to the bar afterwards to take in the amazing views at night. It's quite a walk out of the main attractions but worth the sore feet! (Make sure you...

I'm so sorry my computer blew up during my last review about the hotel in Prague, never got to tell everyone, where we went and what we did. Here it is. As we stayed very close to the old city centre we got a taxi to the Dancing House which I was very excited to see and take pictures, however... More

Just a modern building.Didn't go in,just seeing it from outside was enough for me.We passed it on our way for a walk along the river bank,but I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.I prefer all the beautiful old architecture that Prague has to offer.

Office and apartment building that has achieved some interest because of its unusual shape. I didn't have the chance to go in, but it was interesting enough for a walk past as I was walking the east bank of the Vltava.

And there's a few cool modern art exhibits inside. Your admission to the art exhibits gives you a drink voucher to the top floor bar, which has great views of the entire city.

While there is no doubt this is an unique and interesting building, that is also all it is. If this is the only thing you are going to see in the area, I probably would say: don't bother.

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.
