Look the dancing building or Fred and Ginger, it's a total laugh. He's no semblence to anything it's named after and actually looks quite stupid, more than funny or cool. I don't care how famous an architect wants to be, this building is a total joke and a waste of your time and mine..

This was the most over-rated/over-hyped attraction in Prague. There was an ugly TO LET sign for offices with the telephone number mentioned smack in the middle of the building exterior. it completely spoiled the view of the bldg. The building is quaint and oddly shaped, but there's nothing else to see or do there. There's a souvenir shop at the... More

Instresting to have an outdoor look to this really strange buiding representing Ginger and Fred the famous dancers in a modern architecture. Worth the look as it take 5 minutes to see the buiding and you got aroud many attractions like old buildings and the river. Not easy to take photos of it. We didn't try the cafe.

Nothing exceptional. Went to the 7th floor to the restaurant but had only one or two vegiterian choices. Then went to the 8th floor bar where you could walk out into the terrace. Nice view but congested. I heard it has good lighting at night.

A lovely building and an amazing architecture. I don't think there are tours--but it would be nice if there was some way of touring this building--so forward thinking and to have it here shows a love and appreciation for modern architecture. Much further our than I expected but if you come here you can visit the nearby St. Cyril and... More

Well - as the photos show - it's a weird building. It has it's story and all, but it's not that unique nor it is beautiful in anyway.

Thank Nirunir

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.
