A cool building to see. Definitely take a look if you're nearby. The bar up top is nice, but very small, and could do with some touch ups (cracked/dirty mirror tiles on the floor).

The building is a Landmark that is not to be missed. Make sure to go to the roof top bar and enjoy a break and a drink. Not badly priced and a good place for a short break depending on how you time your visit.

We had seen this building from the outside a couple of times, but on our last day in Prague we decided to try the rooftop cafeteria. Decent prices (unlike the restaurant on the 7th floor, that is much more expensive) and stunning views of the sunset over Prague, a great ending for our trip.

Dancing House is a part of Frank Gehry genius. Ginger and Fred are still dancing looking to Hrad. In the sunset you will see from the 7th floor terracce a spectacular view of the Charles Bridge and the Castle. Take some time to admire Vltava and Andy Warhol works. Dancing House deserve a hour of your time in Prague. Don't... More

There is a beautiful contrast between the building and its context. Modern architecture in baroque background.

Just a nice architecture from the outside, the house resembles a pair of dancers (Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) that were iconic dance partners who made motion pictures together from 1933–1949. The building consists of offices and a restaurant.

This Frank Gehry designed building stands in contrast with the Charles Bridge and various other historic architecture of Prague. Enjoyed the view from the top. There is a cafe on the terrace level. Nice atmosphere.

Makes a cool picture I suppose, but that's all. Not worth going out of your way to see - stop by if in the area. We spent not more than 1 minute outside of it.

Prague is generally known for historic, traditional architecture, so Dancing House is something different and refreshing. It stands out, attracts attention and definitely makes the city's landscape more diverse and interesting. It was designed by Frank Gehry, so it will probably attract modern architecture lovers. Worth seeing!

The building (finished in 1996) depicts a man and a woman dancing. From my perspective, the architects managed to create the illusion of motion, dynamism and passion. When I drove around in Prague, I often took a detour to make my left turn at this intersection.

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.
