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.

The Dancing House, Prague Reviews - Write a Review
Other than the view this place is extremely disappointing. There are SO many more places with a great view in Prague. You either pay to go out in the rooftop or buy a drink (tip:buy a drink it’s cheaper). Then you are out side with 50 other people on the tiny balcony. Really if they are going to let an unlimited number of people go out at one time, they should get ride of the benches. Not to mention people are smoking and being pushy, when all you want is to see beautiful Prague and relax. Then I hope you don’t need to use the toilet after your time up top and your drink! The dirtiest bathrooms I have been to in prague!! Mud all over the floor, no soap and no toilet paper!!! Yet there was a lady who had just “cleaned” them and was headed to the mens bathroom. 🤢
Mind blown. Can’t believe I was there! It’s pure pure joy! There is an awesome rooftop bar that allows scenic views of Prague and it’s worth it!
Glass bar total disappointment. A queue of people for drinks who want to go to the terrace but must wait for the drink before they are allowed to step outside. So the place is crowded. I ordered a protein shake and the waiter started explaining to me that it is best to have that after a workout... dah... I guess people usually go to the glass bar after a workout. They didn't have the ingredients of the shake I ordered and the barman was incapable to replace the missing fruit for other fruit that they had making the service even slower. Once you do get to the terrace all the tables are covered with dirty glasses and cups. Awesome! For a place that charges 90 Kč for 1,5 dc glass if wine it felt like entering a dump. When I told the waitress it was embarrassing, she said had I been to Petřín... What kind of answer is that??? When you leave you go down a back stage staircase, I think it is the fire exit, down 6 floors, you get past the stinky bins and you are out not feeling that you visited The Dancing House, supposedly an iconic architectural mark in Prague. Quite shocking in fact. You gotta up your game. Of course the view is lovely. The building is interesting from the outside but the interior is very average.
It's a really beautiful building. And it's elegant on the inside and out. It's a hotel. But I went there, thinking it's a place for dancing. 😂😂😂 Nevertheless, the view from the top is simply breathtaking.
From an architectural point of view, this building is alright. Frank Gehry is a big name in the industry, so people praise all the of works that he creates. Unfortunately, he is more of a sculpturist than an architect, so the spaces on the inside of the building are just as plain as any other building. If you are looking for great architectural spaces in Prague, look at a lot of other places than here.
