Every day we walked from our apartment into town and passed the dancing building. It is unlike any architecture I have seen before and is at once quirky and fun. I think I'd like the world better if more buildings were designed to be so fun to look at!

This place is called dancing building because of its structure. There corporate offices inside. Its is situated near the river bank and worth a visit since a you're in city to explore.

Great to photograph at night! Cool looking building but if you have a tripod you can get some cool long exposure shots (30 seconds) and get all the cars and trams lights streaming through the shot.

Creative architecture. This is the Fred and Ginger building designed by Frank Gehry. Best at night, for me in the daylight it wasn't impressive but at night is another thing

This quirky building is well worth a visit. During our stay in Prague, it housed an exhibition of life in the 60s-80s with examples of furniture, clothing, transport and toys from the Soviet era. Posters of the walls explained some details of lifestyle and options during those years.

You need to by something from the bar to get free entrance otherwise you must pay about 3€. Take a beer and enjoy the view while sitting on the bench. I enjoyed a lot!

Do not miss this extraordinary building close to the river. There is a very good restaurant, so you can see it from inside as well.

Tančící dům seems to be a controversial piece of architecture, based on the reviews here. In fact, it is a rather unconventional building, which blends surprisingly well with the neighbouring building, in classical style. Blends in or stands out, I will leave that up to you. There is no entrance fee to visit the building and take a lift up,... More

This construction cost an enormous amount of money. Designed by an American architect it is a unique structure not only in Prague but also anywhere else you might visit. You can gain access to the roof where it affords a wonderful view of the river. Worth a visit.

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.
