Žižkov Television Tower

The Žižkov Television Tower (Czech: Žižkovský vysílač) is an unusual transmitter tower built in Prague between 1985 and 1992.

Žižkovský vysílač

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 building features a restaurant with great views over the city, prices are fairly high but not excessive.

The structure of the tower is unconventional, based on a triangle whose corners are growing up in steel columns, consisting of three tubes with a double steel wall, filled with concrete.
