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.
