Zizkov Televison Tower, Prague

3.8
#94 of 1,233 in Things to do in Prague
Visible from almost every corner of the city, Zizkov Televison 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).

  • Today went to the tower. Unfortunately, we could not find the baby. Then we wanted to like to drink and eat in the tower. Unfortunately this was hired and we could not enter.

  • Shopping, history television tower is ehdottmasti worth a visit. The entrance ticket is cheap and amazing views. The tower is both a restaurant and a baarikin. I Tower up to the hotel in a midday, which although it is busy for years to come. The tower was moved to the park land on the babies, so they will not be there at the turn of October and November.

  • We with the husband have such a tradition to visit television towers in their travel photos from the tower is stunning! On the day of your visit was my husband's birthday, we wanted to celebrate in "clouds." cuisine of the restaurant is very much overstated, and not at all measure up to good status, the Goulash was just from live salt, I didn't even eat it, everything else is not much to taste different from eating "ALA lunch menu" Czech beer NO menu) is not Price corresponds to quality dishes. And most are not explainable)) at the restaurant, several rooms, we have clarified whether we only drink or plan to eat, we replied that we plan to eat well. We were put in a room with not zastelenymi tables, later we saw that same Hall with tablecloths on the tables where much cozier and too sat visitors) People in the restaurant was very small So it is not worth restaurant. attention for the gastronomic city of Prague, but great tower if you review types of fans from a height!

  • The tower has 2 visitor levels. The lower one has 2 restaurant areas and one bar area. All commanding great views of Prague. The higher level is an observatory with even better views. For the observatory you pay an entrance fee but for the restaurant you don't. The choice is yours and you decide in the lobby. One elevator goes to the upper level and one to the lower. They also run a one room hotel suite which can be turned into a small boardroom/hospitality area. Pretty unique. The staff is great. I have had plenty of dinners and company events there. A great wine and cocktail selection including some Petrus selections! Parking is available. My advice: go for a coffee or cocktail and check it out. You will not pay to get to the lower level and you can always decide to venture upstairs or visit the restaurants.
  • The television tower is a strange sight. If you're in the area it's worth going to see the tower. Yes there are babies climbing up the side. These were added a few years ago. However , it's not really worth going to the top. There isn't really much to see inside. I expected an exhibition or something. The views are ok but it's a way from the main centre of Prague so you can't really see the main sights
  • Went in after 3 years living in Prague. Facility is not top notch however view is interesting more if you know the city. Would advice to come on spring or summer days when green pops up everywhere.
  • It looks weird! Everyone should see it. Nice panoramic view. Good bar.
  • The view is decent, but the service could be better - the receptionists are not really welcoming. I’m not really sure it’s worth the 230czk you pay for the entrance fee. The mobile app lets you see what is where in the panorama and you can read a bit about the most important buildings, that’s pretty cool, it allows has an augmented reality feature which kids might enjoy.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
