Dancing House (Tancici dum) is situated in a fine location by the Vltava River in the city of Prague. Its design is quite unique, and especially very striking to the city centre. It is quite a modern building surrounded by historical architecture.

The construction of the Dancing House took place between the years 1992 and1996. It has very daring and curvy outlines. This is what led its architects Vlado Milunc and the American Frank Owen Gehry to originally name it as the "Fred and Ginger Building", after the dance duo who were very well renowned.

The top floor of Dancing House is the only part of the building open to the public, and is home to one of the city's leading restaurants: The Ginger & Fred Restaurant.

  • If you love architecture you definitely have to check out the Dancing House in’s such a beautiful building. I would definitely recommend going during sunset to get the most beautiful views of Prague. Definitely a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the gorgeous city.

  • Disappointed - the building doesn't really live up to expectations. For instance: the viewing area only allows about a 120 degree view of Prague; cafe area is crammed with too many tables and chairs and is shabby (plus there are broken light fittings and trailing cables); the windows are dirty and the space just outside the cafe doesn't look as though it's been cleaned for years either. I really liked Prague, and everything else I visited was well worth seeing, but considering this is supposed to be an iconic building designed by a major architect the layout is flawed and the whole thing badly maintained.

  • It's a beautiful building, but Prague are full of these and with better stories. Inside you can find a terrace with a restaurant and a little bar, if you want go to the roof, you have to buy a drink. There's cheap drinks there, but we was told that the entrance was for free, so just have in mind that you need to buy something to go in there. What makes the trip to the house is the view that you can get from the roof.

  • Surprisingly great view of Prague from the top. Entry is upon purchase of a drink from the cafe at the top or by paying 100 crowns. A coke is around 60 and it’s definitely worth the view. The elevators are quite cramped and you can expect a queue.

  • Tančící dům je dominantou nábřeží nachází se v ulici Ječná a stal se jakýmsi novodobým symbolem Prahy čí minimálně jedním z nich. Budova je využita a konají se zde například různé přehlídky či výstavy. Zatímco po výstavě by byl dům přijímán poměrně kriticky věřím že nyní je na něj většina Pražanů Hrdá.
