If you meet this one building, don't run, this building won't collapse. The Dancing House or better known as Fred and Ginger is a building in Prague, Czech Republic. Initially, many disagreed, because this controversial building model did not match the surrounding buildings in the famous Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau style in Prague. But, the Czech President who lived for decades next to the site, enthusiastically supported the project, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity. This architecture was designed by Croatian-Czech Architect Vlado Milunić with Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. There is a historical reason why the building was made that way because there was the location of the house destroyed by the United States bombing in Prague in 1945.

There is nothing unique in the shape of the building but what makes it strange is its base in the form of a steep cliff as deep as 304 meters. Not manipulation, this is the original inhabited building. The strange Greek Meteora mountain formation has been home to monks since at least the 11th century. A number of monastery buildings were cut along the rocks over the following centuries, six of which are still in use and are open to the public and of course must have the patience to climb. Meteora has also been recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site. The abbey houses were built by monks who imprisoned in the area and lived in separate caves. After that they united, to bring construction materials to the top of the rock for years, using ropes, folding stairs, nets, and baskets, and with great determination.
