Fodor's Expert Review Tančící dům

Nove Mesto (New Town) Notable Building Fodor's Choice
Building, Dancing House, Tančící dům, Prague, Czech Republic

This whimsical building, one of Prague's most popular, came to life in 1996 as a team effort from architect Frank Gehry (of Guggenheim Bilbao fame) and his Croatian-Czech collaborator Vlado Milunic. A wasp-waisted glass-and-steel tower sways into the main columned structure as though they were a couple on the dance floor—the "Fred and Ginger" effect gave the building its nickname. It's notable for a Gehry piece as it's more grounded in the surrounding area than his larger projects. The building houses offices and isn't open to the general public.
