Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Visible from almost every corner of the city, Žižkov Television Tower is the tallest structure in Prague. The tower's unconventional triangular design, patented by architect Vaclav Aulicky and engineer Jiri Kozak, received a number of unfavorable nicknames during its early years. Locals resented it as an example of Communist-era architecture marring Prague's famous skyline, while city officials defended it as a major representative of Structural Expressionism. Ugly to some, innovative to others, the building continues to draw tourists with its observatory, which offers 360-degree views of the city. Visit the tower's panoramic restaurant or stay at its single-room luxury hotel, overlooking Prague from a height of 66 m (216 ft). With our custom trip planner, Prague attractions like Žižkov Television Tower can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Nice view, very good architecture and good restaurant! Very reasonable prices and excellent quality food! Thank you that's kind. I will for sure! :-)
  • Not without reasons it's been elected one of the ugliest buildings in the world. Two stars because it made me laugh my lungs off. But seriosly, it ruins one of the most beautiful landscapes i've ever seen
  • Food was good. Atmosphere is chique, so if thats your thing you would probably enjoy it. Nice view aswell. Food was a bit more expensive than usual, but nothing excessive.
  • Cerny's babies crawling up the tower always make me smile. A great spot to view the city from above with interactive activities on the viewing floor.
  • The structure itself is quite interesting and odd. The interior is flashy and stylish. Nice view over the city but restaurant the bar is not worth the visit.
