Interesting architecture, but with so much other architecture to see, I am not sure it is worth the trip. Hard to photograph well with the crowds and all the power lines. Meh.

The dancing building is a great twist on modern architecture but it does look slightly out of place in its surroundings.but was great to see

A walking our day in Prague, One of the historic capitals in Europe. Many old and historic architecture of buildings are the theme of this city. However, you would find new architectural building such as the Dancing Building. Many new buildings are being built around , but their are many shops and restaurants with stunning views over the river.

Beers were warm, they said they had no cold ones :( A nice view, but a much better one from up the Petrin Tower! At the top where the bar and view point is it was surrounded by big spiders in the statue by the seats (saw about 15) which dangled also from the above and saw land in people's... More

This is obviously a pretty cool building to look at from the outside but it also hosts a nice restaurant and a roof top café. The. Jew of Prague from there is awesome! Best kept secret!

Walking along the street, this architecture at first was considered an eyesore amongst the other building styles which it is nestled between, though now considered to be quite an attraction. History aside the building is worth taking some time to appreciate, and photo taking during the day and night which offers another perspective of the building lines & style. I... More

Like many places in Prague, this isn't an obvious place to go for a refreshment but definitely worth seeking out. If you take the elevator (or steps) to the top you'll find yourself in a small cafe with a smaller outside seating area. A notice says something to the effect of 100 CZK or free for customers. Although 100 CZK... More

It's a nice attraction, but I personally think that the building is getting a little bit old. On the top two floors, it has a nice restaurant and a bar.

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.
