Throwback Thursday: The Dancing House (2012)

I can only describe this house as fun.  Designed and completed between 1992 and 1996, shortly after the fall of communism in the Czech Republic, the light-hearted architecture of the Dancing House stands in contrast to the art nouveau-style of neighboring buildings.  Some have nicknamed the building "Fred and Ginger" after the dancing legends Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.   Our hotel stood across the Vltava River from the Dancing House, bringing a quirky start to our time in Prague!

Have you seen the Dancing House or visited Prague?


  1. We were in Prague last year. How did I miss this? It's great.

  2. I haven't heard of the dancing place before seeing it on your blog but I LOVE it! I'm always a fan of quirky architecture. It might not be the prettiest but nobody can deny it's super funky and unique!

  3. I also missed this while in Prague! How cool that you were so close to it.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your comments, feedback, and suggestions.
