Tančící dům or the Dancing House is the nickname given to the Nationale-Nederlanden building in Prague, Czech Republic. Nationale-Nederlanden is one of the largest insurance companies of the Netherlands. The “Dancing House” is set on a property of great historical significance. Its site was the location of a house destroyed by the U.S.bombing of Prague back in 1945. The plot and structure lay decrepit until 1960 when the area was cleared but after that nothing seemed to happen until 1996 when the construction of the house was finally cvompleted.On top of the right building is a large twisted structure of metal called Medusa, which I personally think looks like a bird’s nest.
