An unusual building, although to me it rather looks like someone with an aching back. Since it is not far from the old town or Petrin Hill, it is worth to spare a few minutes to go there and take some photos but it's not an attraction to spend hours at. I don't know what it looks like on the... More

While the buildings seem to look unique, I've seen similar buildings in other places (like the Stata Center at MIT. Furthermore, there was a big advertisement on the front of one of the buildings when we went by, which stood out as ugly in the photos we took. Sure, they're funny because they stand out from the rest of Prague,... More

It's a nice architectural structure, but didn't really inspire me. There could have been cafes or shops or a sitting area overlooking the house, but there's none... You just see it and move on

Folk who say it's better seen by walking past and not going in, are probably correct. The rooftop bar has cracked mirror floor tiles, decrepit-slash-dangerous light fittings with hanging wires, and underwhelming Czech wine. Clientele seemed to consist of emo-groupies, designer die-hards and Chinese girls and a few boys, who all look a bit 'Norwegian Wood'. There is an hilarious... More

Dancing house is a landmark of Prague. Many of my friends said that they always see this building on the post card or picture regarding Prague. It is really a funny and interesting building, it just like 2 people dancing together. We knew that there is hotel inside the building, but we did not go inside.

This building is in all travel guide and honestly this is not one the best places in the city and if you do not have time, do not waste your time to visit here. The interesting thing is comparing the contrast of such a medieval city and this modern and dare building. The place is near (5-10 minutes from the... More

Really interesting design, such a contrast to the ancient architecture of Prague.inspired by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. There is a bar and terrace at the top with great views.

Worth a trip for photos. You can see the dancing couple better from the distance. We didn't go inside but apparently you can stay in the hotel.

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.
