Dancing House, Czech

Dancing House! Yeaah! The building with an unusual shape, represents two dancers Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers (usually called “Ginger and Fred”). You can actually see a couple – woman and man dancing together, holding their hands, with a skirt that sways to the music is is an example of a deconstructivist architecture

The Dancing House is the nickname given to a building designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunic in a co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry. Built between 1994-1996, Dancing House is a strikingly modern contrast to Prague’s historic attractions.

Currently, the building is mainly used as office space while the top floor house a French restaurant, La Perle de Prague, and offers views of the Vltava river and Prague Castle.
