The city of Prague has a never ending list of curious places to visit, explore and enjoy. MH apartments recommends 4 amazing places that will surprise you.

The Dancing House

This stunning house is one of the most interesting Prague constructions from the end of the 20th century. The modern glass building, with curvy outlines and which seems to be dancing on the quay, represents a man and a woman dancing together. This is the reason why its architects, Vlado Milunc and Frank O’Gehry, initially named it “Fred and Ginger Building”, after the legendary dance duo.
It is a controversial building which creates opposed opinions, from lovers to haters that point out that it doesn’t fit into its surroundings.

Make your own opinion passing by the corner of Jirasek Square and Rasin Quay alongside the river Vltava.
