Žižkov Television Tower, Prague
(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.

  • I love the tower. It looks modern and you get a perfect view of the gleaming glory that's Prague. There are a total of three cabins each of which oversees a different part of the city and there's also a space between those with a bar and what not. The tower is worth seeing even if you are in Prague just shortly for its incredible views and the feeling it gives you.
  • Very impressive building. There is a restaurant at 66 meters high. ..looks affordable and an observatory at 93 Meters hight. Nice view over prague.you can not miss the place.
  • This review is not about the quality of the food, which I found amazing! It's more about the service and the feeling of being scamed by one of the waiters. In particular one named Ondrej. We ordered the ravioli (amazing) and the prawns salad from the starters, our waiter Ondrej recommended to take the main dish, the tiger prawns which is bigger and way more expensive. We kindly said no, because we were thinking about eating a delicious dessert after that. We explicitly said the starter. When we ordered the drinks I asked for the home made lemonade (you can see in the menu that is around 75 crowns) and again dear Ondrej said if I wanted the citrus lemonade and I said no, I wanted the homemade one. I just want to clarify that this was not a language mistake. The menu is written in English and I showed him exactly the drink that I was ordering. Time later Ondrej arrived with our drinks. A really nice lemonade (but how do you expect me to know how my lemonade is supposed to look like). And soon enough we got our food. Amazing, the taste and texture, awesome chef. But, we were surprised that the starter was actually quite big, again, how do you expect us to know how our food is supposed to look like. After we paid (and this was our mistake), we noticed that he actually got the main dish "tiger prawns" and the citrus lemonade, funny, because it was exactly both of the things he asked twice and we showed him from the menu what we wanted. When we asked him about it, he looked confused and asked if the quality was OK... Of course it was OK, it was great, but it's not what I ordered!!!!! Honestly, this feel like a scam, and I will make sure to share this review in social media and with my friends in Prague, or at least I'll make sure next time I get a different waiter. Such a bad experience in such a great restaurant.
  • Nice view, very good architecture and good restaurant! Very reasonable prices and excellent quality food! Thank you that's kind. I will for sure! :-)
  • 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.
