Building
“Dancing House (Tančící dům) is set in a fine location by the Vltava River in Prague. Its design is unique, and especially striking in the city centre because it is a modern building surrounded by historic architecture. Dancing House was constructed between 1992-1996. It has daring, curvy outlines, which led its architects Vlado Milunc and the American Frank Owen Gehry to initially name it the "Fred and Ginger Building", after the legendary dance duo. The top floor of Dancing House is the only part of the building open to the public, and is home to one of the city's leading restaurants.”

Garden
“As mentioned above, Franciscan Garden is a great connector between Jungmannovo and Wenceslas Square, which is a good enough reason to come here. The garden is not very large and it is mainly designed for relaxation. You can sit on one of its many benches, eat ice cream that you bought in the adjoining Pasáž Světozor and watch people. There is also a small children's playground with a sand box and swings. ”

Park
“In the past, a farmhouse and a vineyard were preserved in the place of the park, after which the slope with stone walls was preserved. The vineyards were here until the beginning of the 20th century. The impact of the park dates back to the 70s of the 20th century, when the construction of the construction site disappeared after the completion of the Nuselský Bridge and the park had fountains and modern sculptures. The present shape of the flat part is the result of extensive reconstruction of the park, which created a new playground, a mansion with a refreshment and a sports complex. Possibility of free running of dogs. In addition to common trees such as maple trees, ash trees can be found”
