On the right bank of Rašín Embankment near Jirasek Bridge attracts us unusual modern building that is artistic incorporated in the original historic buildings. This is called the Dancing House, also named Ginger and Fred, which was built in 1996.
Not everyone now knows that the name of the house is inspired by the famous interwar dancing pair Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. It is the first building the world's top architects, Frank O. Gehry and Vlado Milunic that was in Prague after the Velvet Revolution built. At that time it was indeed a bold project that the traditional urban environment planted modern architecture, which also triggered extensive public debate on the Architecture of Prague at all.
Despite these stormy discussion and often dismissive attitudes Dancing House won numerous awards at home and abroad, and also including the award for Design in the U.S. Time magazine poll. The building now found mainly offices, luxury cafe and quality restaurant.

One of our long-term goals is to ensure boat operations on the Vltava River that are gentle on the environment. This is why we regularly engage in tidying up floating debris in the Vltava.
