Great views from the rooftop terrace, especially on a clear day. Glass windows giving a fantastic view of the river and castle in the distance. There are about 10 small tables, and a small bar. Prices are very reasonable for drinks and once you buy a drink you can go outside for further views. Worth getting a drink and having... More

Went to the top of the building and wow what great views. However if you want to go outside the man behind the bar will make you buy a drink. My partner did not want a drink but had to buy one to come outside with me.

This sticks out like a sore thumb BUT this was built in the spot of a building destroyed in the WW2. It's actually quite beautiful, but in reality it's just an office block. It. I saw it when I visited the Church of St Cyril and St Methodious (just 5 minutes from this building), walked down to the river (which... More

The Dancing House was built in 1996 and is located on the east bank of the Vltava River. It is also located about a mile directly south of the Charles Bridge. Just walk south on the road next to the river and you will find it. The Dancing House is sometimes called Fred and Ginger by Americans (after the American... More

Designed jointly by Vlado Milunić and Frank Owen Gehry, is a building that contrasts completely with its typical baroque, gothic or art nouveau neighbors of the 2nd district of Prague. It has generated controversy at the beginning of its construction, and the decision of whether you like it or not to see it there, will be yours. The building has... More

Bring your tripod, polarizer and set it up across the road catching light trails from 30 minutes or so. Watch out for traffic!

Lovely stroll across the river bank to the dancing house, There were many tourists outside taking photos of this unusual building. After walking all day in the cold, we decided to head inside to find out what is actually in this building. They are many offices and even a hotel! We took the lift straight to the top to the...

We stay at the Botel Matylda, Yes on the ship and under the bridge so just across from this nice architecture building. Walk to this place in the morning is the best since the traffic is not so heavy. This dancing building is on the cross road of busy Prague so I think morning or evening seem better also for... More

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.
