Really funny building in the middle of the old architecture... The contrast is wow. Situated next to the Vtlava river, at walking distance from the Karl's bridge, it's a nice piece of architecture to see !

Stunning architecture that you must see in Prague very different to normal office buildings. Not an essential thing to see but if you have time I would definitely say go to it.

The Dancing House is a piece of unique architecture designed by Frank Gehry. It is right in the center of the business district of Prague and it can be seen from all good viewpoints like the Petrin Tower.

I saw a photograph of this place some time ago and knew I had to come see it. It cost an astronomical amount to build (90 million dollars we were told) and isn't all that big, but it was a lovely walk to find it,...More

It's located across the veltava river. A very unique and remarkable building. The most significant thing about it is how different it looks from the old town texture.

Small twisted building attached to an old one. Not high enough to see. Nothing special compared to the rest of Pragye. And definitely not even close to what you see in major modern cities around the world. Tourist trap!

Both, there's a restaurant in the building and a lovely coffee shop at the top floor that you can also get a drink in!
