Tv tower in prague
For all its strangeness, the tower is the best viewpoint cities from where you can see everything with comfort and camera corners of Prague. 360 degree view. Although it should be noted that the central part of here is far away and learn the basic attractions will work only on the silhouettes.
Not the most popular attraction, so there are no crowds and it’s great. Telescopes and hanging chairs in the style of “People in Black”, which together with a small number of visitors makes the viewing room very comfortable and interesting place to visit.
I traditionally came before sunset to make at a time Photos of day and night Prague. So with night photos there Problem: The interior light (blue and red) is reflected in the glass and the photo all this can be seen. Plus the glass is unclear and dirty. But during the day it does not really bother.

Night shots are difficult to do, the lighting of the room is reflected lookout
In the evening, the tower outside begins to shine “all the colors of the rainbow” – lights like a Czech flag. If with clouds in the sky, then looks “fire”. As if in a science fiction movie.
At the top of the tower there is a restaurant “Clouds” and your place (i.e. window size) will depend on the amount of the order. Have a drink (bar) window smaller and look worse. A full meal will have a growth window and Great panoramic view. On the day of my arrival (Friday) in the afternoon the restaurant had no seats. They said that it was necessary to book in advance. Consider this moment. Therefore, I limited myself to a lookout a platform. But according to reviews the restaurant is expensive, and the quality is average. So I was not upset.
The restaurant down on earth “Mimino” is also not ice on reviews. So that it is better to come here only to the observation platform.
Zizkov Television Tower in Prague – flag of the Czech Republic
Zizkov TV Tower is considered the highest building in Prague, in in particular in the whole of the Czech Republic – globally. It was designed in 1985 – it was from there that this “unprecedented” came to us the futurism of the era of social realism, which was brought to life already in 1992. And against the backdrop of a beautiful city, this tower does not look from the words “generally”.
In 2000, as an experiment and for “decorating” the tower, on she was placed ten sculptures crawling, faceless, black babies. On all the main resources devoted to Prague you can see in the photo exactly the tower with the babies. And in my pictures of them already No – removed in 2017 for renovation and no longer returned. The tower is already not one of the most wonderful buildings, but these babies just like fragments of the horror game “Silent Hill”, although I would probably liked.
In 2019, I found shot babies in Kampa Park. Truth not all, but only three, crawling in the open air on the grass of the park. A little more detailed description of the place you will find here – Sculpture Infants in Prague.
Incidentally, the building takes some top rating among ugly buildings of the world that somehow inexplicably made it the subject Czech pride (but this is inaccurate). The height is 260 meters and The tower can be seen from almost all districts of Prague. There is even such a joke that the best views of Prague are from the Zizkov Tower because Zizkov Tower is not visible from it.
