Additional Information

The Dancing House was constructed during the years 1992 to 1996. The building is metaphorically called the Dancing House or also Ginger and Fred. It is named this way because the towers remind of the famous dancers Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair. A rock tower represents Fred, and Ginger is symbolized by a tower made of glass. The top of the male tower (Fred) is covered with imaginary hair.
The building was awarded the prestigious prize of the American Time magazine – it won the design category in 1996.

Best Time To Visit

The best seasons to visit Prague are spring and fall when the weather is mild, and there are fewer tourists.
Summertime means warmer temperatures and many tourists. It also means higher hotels and flights rates.
Prague also enjoys many visitors during the Christmas season, but note that you should expect a fair amount of snow and low temperatures.

* Remember to check the weather forecast few days before the trip and before heading to the airport. *
