The Žižkov Television Tower (Czech: Žižkovský vysílač) is a unique transmitter tower built in Prague between 1985 and 1992. Designed by the architect Václav Aulický and the structural engineer Jiří Kozák, it stands high above the city's traditional skyline from its position on top of a hill in the district of Žižkov, from which it takes its name. The tower is an example of high-tech architecture.

The observation deck is 93 meters high and affords a 360 degree view of Prague. It also is a unique tower as it has a famous art installation of crawling babies on the exterior of the tower. Unfortunately, the babies has been temporarily removed for restoration. On the third level is a pricey restaurant and bar. We were going to eat a nice meal but were turned away because reservations are required. The bar, however, was open but does not have the views that are the real attraction of the whole place. The tower is well outside of old town but easily accessible from the subway and then a five minute walk from the subway station through a very nice and picturesque neighborhood with a nice little park and an architecturally interesting church to see. its crawling babies are really nice

The view from the top was spectacular. Unfortunately though the "art installations" in all three rooms were tired beyond compare (or not even there). Another draw to the Tower one sees on Internet pictures is the giant babies crawling up the outside of it... These are also long since removed, although you can still stumble across a couple of them at ground level in the Kampa gardens but this is halfway across the city. Only worth paying for the lift if you REALLY want the aerial shots, otherwise, just admired the architecture from the ground.

Second time of visiting the Žižkov television tower, this time I took my daughter and she loved it. Views are fantastic from all sides of the tower. Restaurant is very clean and modem and the prices are not too bad.

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

The viewpoint - it will cost you 10€, which is a bit above Prague standards, but you will get above the clouds as well :-) If there is nice weather, it is worth it! The restaurant - usually accessible with reservation only, in the price of the superb meal you get entrance to the viewpoint as well. Prices of the main courses are around 25€, service is great and you get magnificent view. There is design restaurant in one section, bar in another one and breakfast / common restaurant in third section. Really nice experience.

A funky looking tower, designed with giant babies crawling up and down the structure. I would recommend this place on a clear day when you can get a good view of the surrounding city. I would also recommend you visit the Oblaca Restaurant that's located up in the tower, the food is good and the view is spectacular.

If you saw beautiful Prague from other view points around, collect the whole puzzle with TV tower. View from 93m high tower in 360 mode is great way to get the picture. Still think that 10 euros is too much, but that's regular price across Europe for similar places.

Amazing life trip and also just a great tourist trip if you aren't a life! Don't worry if you are afraid of hights because all of the indoors of the tower remain indoors up to the top so you can't even fall out if you try hard. If I have one criticism it is the space between how high up it is and the ground. It is very frightening to drink your drink at such a high place! However, you really don't need to worry, as they told me on the lift "you don't need to worry, all of the indoors of the tower are indoors up to the top". If that concerned you as much as it concerned me you need no longer concern yourself at last.

The view at night is much better than seeing one of the awarded ugliest buildings in Europe during the day. The black baby statues from the exterior were being renovated on my last trip. Should be back in place in June 2018.

Vastly improved since its renovation. Easy to buy tickets online, 250kc per person. Fantastic view of whole city. Interesting photo exhibit and films of area and towers history. Hope the creepy babies removal is permanent!

Interesting tower. The babies are being renovated so are missing until November. We thought it was still worth it. I would go in the morning. That way, the sun is to your back when you look towards old town and the castle. During or after sunset may also be a good option.

It's a great construction, strongly recommended for visiting if high altitude doesn't scare you. A big viewing platform divided in the three rooms, one is equipped with funny hanging chairs, so you can sit down and relax, enjoying the beautiful view of Prague. Can't say anything about the restaurant, but I think it's a good place to have a drink there.
