Žižkov Television Tower, Prague

(800+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck
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.

  • Finally reached the Tower, and have not regretted. Visited her in the morning, in connection with which there was almost no tourists. The day was clear, and eyes open, probably, the best view of the city. In one of the three sectors of the observation deck, futuristic suspended swing with speakers, which broadcast the sounds of the city. Swing, wonderful views, the sounds of the city, Cup of coffee. Utter relaxation. NB! At the entrance to the tower is! free toilet!, which is very important in the beer City)

  • On our last day in the magnificent Prague decided to see this tower. The tower looks externally a so-called eco-monsters. But even this tower has a reason. The advice to lovers of modern towers. This tower has its own story. Obviously from above you will definitely see an incredible view of the city. We have already seen the panorama of the city from other places and the most beautiful towers in this decidedly not hopped. To get to the lookout pay, ticket prices range from day to day probably based on visitor turnout. The day we went we I think cost 150 crowns. Before you can take advantage of the lift you are rightly subject to a security check. On the top floor there is also a restaurant but I don't know how you eat and how much you spend. Disturbing Children statues installations that appear to be climbing the tower. Very nice neighborhood where there are palaces Tower really to see, very beautiful. There is also a church unique in its style, very special. Must see a Jewish cemetery under the Tower, very impressive. Itself at the end of your visit to Prague you have time go there. Then itself are not already been to other scenic spots of the city then I would recommend to get on it, at least you'll see the city from above. But Prague has so many other sights much more beautiful and evocative and historical maps where you pay less kronor for access. Below the Tower in case it may be of interest to you include public restrooms. (In Prague the bathrooms are paid almost anywhere, even inside the premises).

  • 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.
