Creative Dancing House in Czech Republic

It may sound crazy to you – a house that dances? Impossible! But it is real! Originally named Fred and Ginger (referring to Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair – the legendary dance duo) this amazing building has the nickname the Dancing house, another one is the Drunken house. The dwelling was designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunic in a co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry. Now it is used as an office building in downtown Prague, Czech Republic. The aim of the architects was to create an icon in Prague. I think they managed. An unusual shape of the house reflects dancing. You can see a couple - woman and man dancing together, holding their hands, with a skirt that sways to the music. The Dancing House stands out among the Neo-Baroque, Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings that Prague is famous for. This can’t be described by words! You have got to see it!
