The Dancing House in Prague, Czech Republic
A house that dances? Impossible! It may sound crazy to you but it is real!
Let me share to you some pictures from our recent trip in Prague.
As a UNESCO Heritage site, Prague has always been very conservative about construction of new buildings in the historical center, especially on the riverside. However, one architect was successful in the early 90s with the construction of this very modern building, which nowadays ranks among the most significant landmarks of Prague’s riverside.
The Dancing house was built in the years 1992 - 1996. The house that stood there before was destroyed during the American air bombing of Prague on the 14th February of 1945. The building was awarded the prestige prize of the American Time magazine - it won the category of design in 1996.
