Танцующий дом (чеш. Tančící dům, изначально Nationale Nederlanden Building) — офисное здание в Праге в стиле деконструктивизма, состоит из двух цилиндрических башен: нормальной и деструктивной. Танцующий дом является архитектурной метафорой танцующей пары, в шутку называется «Джинджер и Фред» в честь пары Джинджер Роджерс и Фред Астер. Одна из двух цилиндрических частей, та, что расширяется кверху, символизирует мужскую фигуру (Фред), а вторая часть здания визуально напоминает женскую фигуру с тонкой талией и развевающейся в танце юбкой (Джинджер). Как и многие деконструктивистские сооружения, резко контрастирует с соседствующим цельным архитектурным комплексом рубежа XIX—XX веков.
Nothing special. Just really cool to see it. You can go into this building. On the top you can sit and have some cool things to drink and eat. I would recommend you to wear Pants.. cause up there are mirrors on the floor and it could be unpleasant for you
We stayed in this hotel for one night in the summer. We booked one of their best suits (can't recall the name) with panoramic views. We had only few hours in Prague and wanted to have wonderful time and do at least some sightseeing. When we got to the hotel we were surprised that the parking was couple of blocks away which was very inconvenient with all of our suitcases. When we checked in and got to the room we immidiatelly knew there is something wrong. The room was very nice but not the room we booked and paid for. This room was their basic room not the suit. The lady argued with us that it is what we booked and that pictures are sometimes misleading. We were not happy and when she left I went online and double checked our reservation to confirm that she was wrong. That the suit she said was not the one we were supposed to get was actually suit we booked and paid extra for. We went to complaint. The receptionist was very rude and was trying to convince us that we are wrong. She called her manager and we talked to her over the phone. At this point, after about an hour complaining they admitted that they made a mistake and we got a wrong room. Problem was that they did not have any other suits available . After another hour arguing we were able to get a refund of the difference in the cost between these two rooms. Can't believe that we had to argue to get the refund for something we did not get! We also got a certificate for dinner at their restaurant. Though the restaurant is very expensive and the certificate did not covere even one dinner for one person! And due to all this inconvenience and arguing we lost the most of our valuable time which we had for sightseeing! The hotel is very nice and great location but the stuff and customer service is very bad! And that is the reason we would never stay there again!
Unconventional modernist building in Prague, which reminded me very much of Casa Milà in Barcelona. Go in and take the elevator to the bar where you'll be able to have access to their terrace (free of you buy a drink) and enjoy a breathtaking view. We had protein smoothies for 99kc (approx £3.5) and they were not bad.
Nice lunch with a great view. Food was delicious and staff was very friendly. Decent choice of main courses and signature drinks. If you wanna feel the Prague a little bit more you can visit terrace at the restaurant or bar with the 360 view at the top. Enjoy but call a cab shown you want to continue somewhere else, crossroad is very busy and noisy to walk around.
Interesting building from the outside, you should get in to the rooftop bar. You can take your drink outside and use the free telescope there to look around Prague. We did it by night, and we had lot of space and quiet to admire this incredible view. A must see! 😉
Awesome building! I been told that the two buildings represent a man and a woman! There is a really nice restaurant on floor number 7! But it is better to make reservations because it is always full! There is also a bar on floor 8th with a really nice terrace with one of the best views.in prague!!
Really lovely place to stop on a walk around Prague. Good view. Pleasant staff. Found it through Janek's 'Honest Guide' to Prague.
Very interesting building, modern architecture inspired in Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The view from the roof top is well worth it. Although it was not our favourite spot for great views over the city.
We went to have breakfast and enjoy the view and the sun. However at the top floor they serve only coffee and tea, nothing to eat. There is almost no place to seat in the terrace. You can have breakfast at the restaurant one floor below, which is just OK. The view is nice, but the breakfast was not to the standards of other places. We had the option with a mix of Danish pastries which turned out to be only three pieces of the same thing. The coffee was tasty. You can go to the dancing houses for the view, have a quick coffee or tea in the terrace, but don't expect anything to remember about the place itself.
Overrated architecture piece, which looks much better on selected photo angles than in the real world experience. Very poor quality of detailing on the exterior of the 'skirt' glass volume. Even the current company disregards the glass facade qualities and advertises offices for rent over it. The best about the building is the good block integration and the views you have from the rooftop.
Awesome place to stay. A walk away from town centre and attractions. 3* Michelin Restaurant upstairs with good breakfast and dinner with a view. Complimentary drinks and access to the rooftop bar with a breathtaking view of the river running thru the city.
An iconic landmark in Prague and yes, it's a hotel too. I did not stay there. However, you can take the elevator to the top and see one of the most picturesque views of Praha. Although you'll need to buy a drink or something to eat. A small price to pay for an outstanding experience. Cudos to the architect for going outside the box.
Dancing house is a great photography opportunity. We went at sunset which was a great choice. Not only was the sun setting, placing a nice glow on the dancing house, but it also provided for a beautiful walk down the canal during sunset. Would return!
Highly Recommend! Great place to go for a nice view of the city! You walk in and take the elevator up to the 7th floor where there's a restaurant, and then you take some stairs up to where the terrace is. To go out onto the terrace you can either pay 100czk or buy a drink and go for free (I recommend the second option). Lady making the drinks wasn't super friendly, but we really enjoyed the drink and the view!
Not sure, but nothing special. Didn’t go inside. Had it been sunny, the glass would have been bluish/brighter. I was expecting something else from other pictures. But nope. Should I wait for the lights? Ah nope.
Lovely views from the rooftop bar! This was our first stop on our holidays and was definitely worth it. Tip - it's free entry if you buy a drink!
Beautiful views from the top. There is a hundred crown fee to go outside but you spend it on a drink of your choice so not too bad really. Definitely recommend this site viewing spot.
In order to enjoy the view you're going to have to pay for a drink (sodas are about €2,50!), which you're not allowed to share. View was good, but not worth five euros since the tetras is actually pretty small and you will no be able to see all of the city, just 2/3. Guess it's more picturesque to just take a photo of the house itself and not actually go in.
Go inside and take the elevator to the top. Order a beer and enjoy the magnificent views of Prague. We went right before sunset and the city looked beautiful. In order to go outside you have to order a drink bit it's worth the money.
Prague is one of best places I ever seen...I am just fell love with Prague... very nice place.. good people...clean city...I love those bridges....I went during winter..it was so cold that time..I just managed to roam around city...this dancing tower looks really cool... just some cafeteria on top of the building...I enjoyed this place...I recommend everyone this place..
Prague has a lot of cool modern buildings and the dancing house is one of them. I only viewed from the outside but it has a unique character. With a visit and a stroll along the river is always nice.
