A very modern and interesting building to look at in Prague. If you see it, go inside and go to the rooftop bar. Its free to go up and the view of the city is amazing!!! There is also a restaurant that would give a cool view as well, but all the food seemed to fancy for us...The Dancing House... More

Take the time to appreciate the bizarre modern design of this building. It's in complete contrast to the architecture that people visit prague to see . But it did put a smile on my face

Our tour guide drove us past the house so that we could see this unique building. It is suppose to be Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing. If you look at it you can kind of see it. We were told that this was a way of acknowledging Fred Astaire since his family is from Prague and they are buried... More

i read about this attraction before going to Prague and was just curious to see it, but it did not impress me as much as i expected. the city itself is much more beautiful. this is just a curious place to see.

I view this building as new because it was not part of the Prague I knew and grew up in. It was built after the nation got rid off the communist regime and the new president Vaclav Havel had a major input as to choosing the architects and the location. The building does look like a dancing couple - everybody... More

We walked 20 minutes from the old town to see this piece of art, and in the photos it looks quite spectacular.. However in reality it's quite dull and boring!! If your in to architecture I suppose it's worth the walk, but if your not fused, there's better things to do and see!!

It is an incredible looking building but I wouldn't go out of your way to see it. We went to see it on the way to another attraction. Looks just like the photos. We didn't have the time to venture inside which may have given more stars as it looked like it had a really nice rooftop terrace area so... More
