Go take a pic to show your friends back home, then move on to more important and historic things. For example only one-two blocks away on Resslova, is Ss Cyril and METHODIUS Cathedral. And in the basement the National Memorial to the Heydrich terror. Very touching and something important you can tell your friends back home. Especially when watching the... More

The interesting thing about this block is the Dancing Building which is worth a look see. As I posted under the building itself, there really isn't a lot to see or do, but if you are a fan of architecture as I am, you really do want to drop by at least long enough to see the Frank Gehry's Dancing...

Surely not an attraction by itself. But yes, the road does lead to quite a few of them. The apartment block is known more for the dancing building. And trust me, there is something about the building that made me laugh..It's an oddly shaped building that looks as if it is dancing. Nothing else here

Have a nice view and is pretty, specially if you like design and architecture, but the service in the terrace or bar is terrible: very rude waitress that damage the experience

Well it is different from most other buildings and for that very reason it gets a pass mark. I'm sure if it's around in 100 years time it will score higher but I'm not sure trip advisor will still be around then. Visit the Heydrich museum just up the road, it might well make your hair stand on end rathet... More

Every city has one of these types of buildings, always an eye opener and worth a look, it's an apartment block so you're not going to get in, so it's a passing thing, take a few photos and move on.

Its probably like marmite, you love it or hate it. It's a fun bit of architecture that fits in well in the area. Can't miss it, and makes for a good landmark for giving or receiving directions to somewhere in this area.

The building is interesting to say the least, especially next to all the other old style buildings. It certainly looks out of place.

Havel did not live in the dancing house, but in the apartment next to it. He was a great supporter of its construction, nevertheless, the apartment block is nothing of particular interest, but only the dancing house on the corner.

Based on other reviews I went to see this building. It is very different from other buildings in Prague, but it isn't that impressive when up close. The best view off the building was from the national theatre in my opinion.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
