The famed building that celebrates the new architecture in Prague, designed of course by modern architectural icon Frank Gehry. The building is named as such because they look like a couple dancing.

Beautiful modern architecture from world-renowned architects Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. The stone tower symbolizes Fred Astaire and the glass tower, Ginger Rogers. When in Prague, do try to catch a glimpse of this architectural marvel.

The dancing building is a landmark in Prague's New Town. It functions as an office and it is located close to Charles Bridge. Dancing building is a must-see attraction and you can take some photographs of it.

Almost all of Prague is old architecture. This is an example of how modern architecture can be mixed with the old one without prejudice to none of them. This office building near the Vltava river is simply amazing. Take a good picture and continue your trip.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres 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 theatres. National Theatre 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.
