Or the Drunk House  is a building  in downtown Prague, Czech Republic at Rašínovo nábřeží 80, 120 00 Praha 2. Technically the Nationale-Nederlandenbuilding. It was designed by Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić in cooperation with Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront lot. The building was originally called Fred and Ginger, a nod to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers as the house resembles a pair of dancers.

I requested hubby that we must see this Art Noveau building before the day ends. I knew it would be worth the trouble walking and braving the streets for some shots!

The Dancing House is situated on the riverfront. Going on the other side of the road to have a full view of the building, I can’t help but shoot the scenic river too.

  1. It reminds me of Branson where they have this building that looks just so crooked, but it’s designed that way. How awesome! I love the photos. Visiting via TT. A late one!

  2. How I wish Philippine architects, engineers and designers think an out-of-the box idea like that, stop applying the traditional and trending in terms of originality and hype.

  3. Ive seen photos like these many years ago. It’s a combination of structural integrity and unique architectural design. And of course Prague is one place to visit. I hope I can have the chance to do so.

  4. This is the most interesting photo I’ve seen for the day! I’ve never seen one that is more unique as this one. They sure are very artistic when it comes to building and architecture. Thumbs up for this. 🙂
