The building is an example of deconstructivist architecture, with an unusual shape. It reflects a woman and man (Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair) dancing together. Construction is from 99 concrete panels each of different shape and dimension, each therefore requiring a unique wooden form.
This monumental entrance by which the coronation processions of Czech kings entered the Old Town is one of the most significant monuments of Late Gothic Prague. Completed in 1475, the Powder Tower, which formerly served as a gunpowder store, is still the starting point for the Coronation or Royal Route to Prague Castle.
ZIZKOV TV TOWER
Designed by architect Václav Aulický and structural engineer Jiří Kozák, the highest construction in Prague was built between 1985 and 1992. The complex houses a restaurant as well as a six-star suit called One Room Hotel.
It is primarily used as a concert hall, but it also has considerable historical resonance. Architecturally, it is considered to be one of Europe’s finest examples of the art nouveau style.
ST. VITUS CATHEDRAL
Built over a time span of almost 600 years, St Vitus is one of the most richly endowed cathedrals in central Europe. It is pivotal to the religious and cultural life of the Czech Republic, housing treasures that range from the 14th-century mosaic of the Last Judgement and the tombs of St Wenceslas and Charles IV, to the baroque silver tomb of St John of Nepomuck, the ornate Chapel of St Wenceslas, and art nouveau stained glass by Alfons Mucha.
