The Zizkov Television Tower is the tallest structure in the Czech Republic and is a striking example of communist era architecture.
Located in the suburb of Zizkov, from which the tower got its name, and it can be seen from most parts of the city, sticking out among the otherwise old classical architecture that Prague is renowned for.
The tower rises 216m above the ground below, but the highest visitors can reach is the observation deck at 100m. Even so, from this vantage point it is possible to get a great view over the entire city of Prague.
There is also a restaurant in the tower, but on a lower deck which sits about 60m above the ground.
In the year 2000, artist David Cerny put a number of statues of crawling babies on the towers struts. Although only meant to be a temporary exhibit, the public liked them so much that they are now a permanent feature of the tower.
