It’s a modern Leaning Tower of Pisa — only, wait, it’s supposed to do that.
The next time you’re in Prague, be sure to visit The Dancing House (the Tančící dům, completed in 1996), located on the corner of Rasinovo nabrezi and Resslova street, along the River Vltava near the city center.
The contemporary building, designed by architects Vlado Milunc and Frank O. Gehry (surprised?) is home to offices and French restaurant La Perle de Prague, which offers stunning views of the River Vltava, Prague Castle, and St. Vitus’s Cathedral. Fondly referred to as the “Ginger and Fred” building (aptly named for the famous dancing duo), the Dancing House is an example of deconstructivist architecture and (for the imaginative) resembles two people dancing.
To get there, take the metro’s yellow line B to Karlovo Namesti station.
