There are some places around the world that we can call "iconic". Dancing Building is one of them. It's crazy, cool, fashion...it's magic ! It's a kind of place that can make you smile, it's absolutely great ! But to your experience be completed, you should go to the roof top bar. Sit there, take some drinks and of course,... More

Beautiful modern architecture from world-renowned architects Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. The stone tower symbolizes Fred Astaire and the glass tower, Ginger Rogers. When in Prague, do try to catch a glimpse of this architectural marvel.

The dancing building is a landmark in Prague's New Town. It functions as an office and it is located close to Charles Bridge. Dancing building is a must-see attraction and you can take some photographs of it.

Almost all of Prague is old architecture. This is an example of how modern architecture can be mixed with the old one without prejudice to none of them. This office building near the Vltava river is simply amazing. Take a good picture and continue your trip.

Maybe it is due to the fact that I come from a city packed with modern buildings that the dancing building didn't really stir anything in me. But honestly the building's design is interesting. If you have time it will be nice to see

The building is beautiful from an architectural point of view, however there are surely more interesting places to visit in Prague. It is nice to see, but not worth a larger detour.

Glad I saw it! My son and I were wandering the streets of Prague early and with nothing open yet, we made our way alongside the river to the Dancing House. It was unusual, warranted a couple of camera shots and voila, DONE! I would've liked to go inside but was not to be. If I hadn't seen it, it... More

Stopped here to take a look at the dancing house while on a walk . It's a very interesting design and clearly unique but I wouldn't go out your way to see it

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.
