Žižkov Television Tower, Prague

(850+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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.

  • Interesting building. Be careful. On April 29, 2017, I went to the upstairs drinking lounge for drinks and a view, arrival time 19:58. I went with five other people, four were young adults, stayed 1 hour and 10 minutes. During that time, I left the table twice. Got the Bill - 31 drinks on the bill! Impossible! My husband and I had ONE drink each. Of course, I did not ask each young adults to tell me what type of drink and how many drinks each one had - it would have ruined a lovely evening. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE ! ! ! !
  • So please do your homework, READ. You don't have to pay the entrance fee. Instead, go to the restaurant. A beer is only 75KC which is cheaper than the entrance fee and you have something to drink and sit. The tower is nice to look at from the outside. And on the inside it's a very hip bar.... There's also a hotel in case you don't know. View is stunning.
  • My wife and I went to observation deck at 93 metres on 19 January 2015. It was a very clear winter day and views were amazing. Not much else up there, shame really. Would be an ideal place for a bungee jump but I can imagine the local residents not tolerating the screaming. Doesn't cost much and very well worth a visit to get 360 view of Prague.
  • Waste of money. We went there today ready for the wonderful view on the city. The receptionists were unfriendly. The air quality in the rooms is horrendous. For that high price, the expectations remain unfulfilled. Not recommended.
  • Up there is a restaurant and a view deck. When I went her it was undergoing reconstructions, but the view over Prague is the best you can get.
