While we anticipated, as probably most tourists, that our visit to the Dancing House would be to see the wild architecture, which really is fun, the surprise was how interesting the museum was. The exhibit was dedicated to the history, politics and culture of the...More

I didn't realise you could visit the terrace for the reasonable price of a drink. It is well worth doing so for the views of Prague. It rested our weary legs after a long day sight seeing and gave us some great photos

We didn't get to go inside but it sure is interesting looking on the outside. It was built between 1994 and 1996 as a symbol of the new Prague. The architects were inspired by Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

Fascinating story behind this building - the corner was mistakenly bombed at the end of the war (the pilot thought he was in Dresden in Germany..it was foggy) and so the bomb destroyed this corner- it took until 1992 to be redesigned and this is...More

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
