Žižkov TV Tower

Prague's Least Favorite Spire
The Žižkov TV tower was built in the latter half of the 1980s. Locals have hated it since day one--though public resentment of the "Penis of Prague," as it's been called, seems to be waining a bit. There have been rumors that the Soviets built the tower to block out radio transmissions from the West. Today the futuristic tower is best for getting a sky-high view of the City of 100 Spires.

Revel in the weirdness of Prague's TV Tower Babies
Towering above the Czech Capital's historic buildings, the Žižkov TV Tower looks like it's been infested with ants. Not so. Prague's tallest building is crawling with Czech sculptor David Černý's giant fiberglass miminka, or babies. While you can't see much detail on the creepy little tykes climbing the tower, nearby you can find a few at ground level that allow for closer inspection. Be sure to get a good look--these otherwise perfectly formed infants have pushed-in three-dimensional barcodes for faces.

While you're in the area, head to the top of the tower itself for 360º views of the city.
