Dancing House, Prague

3.6
#56 of 1,539 in Things to do in Prague
Aptly named Dancing House is one of the more unusual buildings in the city center, a modern glass structure surrounded by Gothic and Baroque architecture. Designed by architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry, the curvy glass tower appears clutched against a more upright structure, making the combination look like a pair of dancers. Nicknamed the "Fred and Ginger Building" after the celebrated dance duo, the building caused controversy in the 1990s, as some critics felt it did not accord well with the surrounding architectural styles. Visit the top floor, which houses a restaurant and offers views stretching all the way to the city's famous castle.

  • Great view and you can sit and enjoy it - if there's not people standing up in front of you. It's worth a visit though. If you buy a drink, entrance is free (and we just had juice). Really nice to just soak up the view and the seating is comfy. Lots of people doing selfies and posing.
  • I didn't venture to the top of the Dancing House but this place really pops at night. Stand on the bridge and take it in to enjoy it. The windows of this building remind me of old children story books. Worth checking out if you get the chance.
