Further down the river Mr Monkey came to the Tančící dům (Dancing House), designed by Frank Gehry. It's supposed to look like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing. Mr Monkey approved of it because it's an interesting building but it's not foolishly tall. He looked over a parapet at the small islands - Slovanský ostrov, Střlecky ostrov and Dĕtský ostrov - in the Vltava below Jiráskův most.
You can read about the Dancing House at the galinsky website.
