The Dancing House
One of the city’s most iconic buildings
Word to the wise: Even if you can only afford a drink, head straight to the rooftop restaurant for stunning views over the Vltava.
In a city famous for Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings, the Dancing House is something completely different. The futuristic building was designed in the 1990s by star architect Frank Gehry and defies any architectural tags.
The building towers over the Vltava river, with one linear section made of concrete and another made of glass. It was originally nicknamed Fred and Ginger – after the dancing duo, Astaire and Rogers – and is now home to a number of multi-national companies and a fabulous French restaurant, Celeste.
