Casa Danzante

The Dancing House in Prague is a deconstructivist building designed by Czech-Croatian architect Valdo Milunc, in 1992 and completed in 1996, and the story around its creation has its peculiarities. The structure of this building represents two dancers in full dance. At first most of the Prague people opposed its construction, because they considered that it broke with the harmony of the city, characterized by the careful building facades and Gothic style. Visiting the Dancing House inside is not possible, since it is currently fully occupied by offices. What you can do is have dinner at the restaurant that occupies the top floor and has incredible views of Prague. For more information visit this website: https://www.praga.es/que-ver/casa-danzante/

Cementerio Judío

The Jewish cemetery was created in 1439 (so the first tombstone of Avigdor Karo dates) and, although it was growing over the years, all due was not extended and now all its intimate character can be appreciated. Due to the lack of space the bodies were buried on top of each other (reaching more than 10 stacks). Today you can see more than 12,000 gravestones. It is not a monumental cemetery or surrounded by lush gardens, like other European cemeteries. Nor does it contain ostentatious tombs, but small stones, following Jewish custom.

Torre de la Polvora (Prasna brana)

The Powder Tower is one of the preserved doors of the old wall that surrounded Prague. It is a 65 meter high Gothic construction, connected to the Municipal House by a bridge. On the great arch that allows access between the Republic Square and Celetná Street are the statues of several kings of Bohemia. Its construction began at the end of the 15th century. From the beginning it was thought more than as a defensive tower, as a beautiful element that would welcome visitors to the city. It was designed in the image and likeness of the nearby tower of the Charles Bridge, so in principle it was put on New Tower name, to differentiate it from the previous one. Between them they formed the Royal Road that the kings traveled on the day of their coronation. Their current name was obtained in the seventeenth century, when it was used as a gunpowder store.
