Strange building - Tančici dum :)

It's very strange building for Prague. It's called Tančici dum. It's only 20 years old. I was not impressed too much but it's refreshing to see such a building in a historical... read more

No, it doesn't dance, but probably one of the most photographed buildings in Prague. It really is funny looking and not very practical. My pic shows a big sign advertising it for rent, and after I returned home read an article about some company renting space in it. Sad after 20 years, people had little interest in it. It is...

It's certainly something a bit different, but as other people have said it looks a little bit out of place in the city due to the older architecture. It's well placed with a nearby tram stop and a reasonable walk from the Old Town and one of the metro stations. Worth going to see if you have time to look... More

This uniquely modern shaped building overlooks the river but it looks a little strange and out of place in an old city

I was in Prague, an exciting city. The Dancing Building (or Dancing House) offers a great view of the Moldova River and all the beautiful bridges. There is a good cocktail bar in the rooftop, so you can find a good combination: drink and wonderful view. =)

This is a strange shaped building indeed, situated in New Town near the Vitava River. I am told it is close to tram stops and so on, but really wouldn't know as I chose to walk. Strangely for such a building in such an old city it does not look that out of place, and I am told the view... More

When we made our itinerary to Prague, we tried not to forget this iconic building. Its a unique modern building around the old buildings, and is very near with the tram stop. Not many thing to do around but just taking a picture of it.

Well, I have been living in Prafue almost all my life, but this was my 1st time in Dancing House and it was really amazing! Wow view to Prague and Prague Castle, Moldau river, National Theatre, Náplavka and very stylish cafe on the roof top :-)

Came across this building whilst walking along the river, it's great to look at. We didn't have time to go up it, but had a few pictures with it.

Loved the views from up top. Did have to buy a drink per person to be able to go out on the patio. It was worth it and loved the views on our sunshiny praha day.

Thank rgarg_23

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.
