About

Dancing House in the Czech Prague is a masterpiece of modern architecture designed by two architects in 1992. The architects were Canadian-American Frank Gehry and Czech Vlado Milunic. The design was done just after the Czech Velvet revolution of 1989 and the supported by the first non-communist Czech president after WWII, Vaclav Havel who co-owned the house which neighbors the Dancing House. The construction of the house took place in a site of an old building destroyed in WWII and was completed in 1996. The Dutch insurance company, currently ING Bank, sponsored the building development. Only the top floor of the building is accessible to public and it houses one of Prague’s top restaurants, Celeste.
