Different on a good way. Worth going at least to take pictures of it, you won't find another one like that. Good to know the history behind it also.

My friend told us there is a striking and modern Dancing Building. We stayed close to the old town square. It was not far for us to walk there for a look. At the same time we can explore the new town of Prague. The building is built by the Vltava River. The shape of the building is so unique,... More

The story of it is just more important than its current status. Just research its story and go take a selfie infront of it.

The Dancing Building has a lot of personality both from its outward appearance and the tone of the restaurant and cafe inside. The gallery is worth perusing for a few minutes, and then head up to the roof cafe which steals the show. I grabbed a cup of tea and sat outside overlooking the city's bridges and water and reflected... More

Good location, accessible by a lift. Usually, they charge for the terrace, however, if you buy any food/drink at the bar on the top floor, then free entry. Invariably, it makes sense to buy something to eat or drink and get free entry to the terrace. When weather is good, excellent views and nice place to have a drink. Would... More

It is an interesting building created for art loving people. Situated at a very convenient crossing of Vltava river bridge. The building is a normal one but designed in curve to show as if a woman is dancing with him. This makes the building an interesting place for tourists.

I read all about this building and was looking forward to seeing it. I was so disappointed. The photos I saw before looked so much better. I thought the building was just awful. I didn't even bother taking any photos.

We saw this building from the outside and it was just a building that was trying to be different. It was a curious building especially for impressing tourists while having a coffee shop in the inside and some modern art exhibitions! We were not hardly any surprised in the sight of it but for some people it might be very... More

Amazing meal, food was to die for! Salmon was cooked to perfection and garnish was rich and full of flavour. Service was quick, staff were very responsive at taking care of you from start to finish. Would definitely recommend and also a place to see if you are in Prague with a view. Thank you!

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.
