This modern building on the corner of Resslova and
Masarykovo, by the
Vltava caught my eye. Since posting this photo on the web site I have had a number
of people email me with details on the building.
The ING Netherlands Bank Building designed by Frank O. Gehry and Vlado
Milunic. The building is next to the family house of President Havel (actually built
by Havel's grandfather) who is supposed to have nicknamed it Fred & Ginger (it is
supposed to resemble a couple ballroom dancing). The original building on this
corner was destroyed during World War II.
Visit LAVA's Praha Experience
page on the Fred and Ginger
Building for some more pictures of this wonderful building.
A big thank you to everyone who emailed!
