Dancing House in Prague – Who Are These Dancers?
This Dancing House in Prague is in every tourist guidebook of the city. However, I really have mixed feelings about listing it as a tourist attraction. Alright, it’s different, eh? It’s not the usual building you can find in Prague, but, ok, it’s….unique?
Now, let’s take a closer look at this piece of architecture.
The glass tower is undoubtedly the woman in the dancing duo, right? And she’s obviously wearing a skirt! Isn’t she curvy?
The stone tower on the right is, of course, the man. I wonder why the man only has one leg and the woman has six legs. 😀 😀
But do you know that the dancing duo has names? They are named after Fred Astair and his dancing partner, Ginger Rogers. Thus, the Dancing House is also called “Fred and Ginger.”
And guess what – you can actually go up there at the Fred and Ginger Restaurant. The views of the river and parts of the Charles Bridge and the Prague Palace are visible here.
I think the reason why this building is because Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunic designed it. Don’t forget to check out the buildings around the Dancing House. Many of them are wonderful, historical, and colorful, too!
