We stay at the Botel Matylda, Yes on the ship and under the bridge so just across from this nice architecture building. Walk to this place in the morning is the best since the traffic is not so heavy. This dancing building is on the cross road of busy Prague so I think morning or evening seem better also for... More

We decided to walk along the river to see this building and so glad we did as it was a beautiful day. The building is impressive to see but not actually sure what goes on inside.

This modern building , or is it a couple overlooks the river but is not to my taste . The design on top where the tourist viewing platform is looks like it has a roll of barbed wire on top - ugly - sorry

It is not near any other big attraction and it is not looking nice neither - so I see it as lost of time. The so-called 'dancing' effect should come from some static strange-looking shape, which I do not see and appreciate at all. There are much better places in Prague than this, so I see it as touristic trick.

I am an Architect by profession, so this was a must see for me. Whatever my thoughts on Frank Gehry are is neither here or there. This building as a landmark in Prague is great. The marriage of the New Building to the Old is successful and of course it makes for a great picture. It only took about 20... More

The famed building that celebrates the new architecture in Prague, designed of course by modern architectural icon Frank Gehry. The building is named as such because they look like a couple dancing.

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.
