Experience in detail
The Žižkov television tower is one of the dominants of Prague, which is difficult to overlook. The whole tower reaches a height of 216 meters. The observatory is located 93 meters above the ground, you can reach the top with the lift. It is possible to see up to 100km in good visibility!
You can enjoy the view from three thematically different 'capsules.' Each of the capsules carries a different topic. The first one will introduce you to the World Federation of Great Towers. In the next cabin are the famous bubble chairs, from which you can enjoy the beautiful Prague and rest for a while. The last cabin serves as an exhibition and always represents the art of Czech artists (paintings, photographs, collages, etc.).In addition to the viewing platform, there is also a bistro and restaurant on the tower, which is a great place for a romantic dinner with a view of Prague.
The Žižkov Television Tower was founded in the years 1985 - 1992 according to project Ing. Arch. Václav Aulický and Dr. Ing. Jiří Kozák. It is still a highly controversial building due to the contrast of the historical surroundings and high-tech architecture. According to a poll conducted by the Australian server VirtualTourist.com, the tower was voted the second ugliest building in the world. It is also impossible to miss the climbing giant babies, the laminate sculptures, which are the work of the internationally acclaimed artist David Černý.
After admiring all the views stop for a while and enjoy a delicious sweet dessert and cup of coffee in the Bistro 66 located 66 meters above the ground. The Bistro is under reconstruction until half of June. Until then you can get dessert and coffee from the newly open restaurant Miminoo right under the Žikov Tower.
Please note that the opening hours may change due to private events in the observatory and restaurant.
