“In Rome the statues, in Paris the paintings, and in Prague the buildings suggest that pleasure can be an education.” – Caleb Crain
This is the Dancing House in Prague, which is also often referred to as ‘Fred & Ginger’ because the building seems to resemble the dancing posture of a couple. (Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are a dancing duo who made many classic and dancing films together in the 1930s).
Fred and Ginger was designed by Vlado Milunic in 1992. It is a super modern and very attractive building which stands in contrast with the older style architecture all around it.
Because of its quirky architecture, tourists can’t resist taking photos of this building although it is in a busy intersection where trams and buses continuously pass by.
It is funny how so many people are trying to take photos of it… kicking it or punching it. It is said to be one of the most Instagrammable places in Prague. And here is my hubby doing just that.
