Žižkov TV Tower

A prime example of hi-tech architecture this television transmitter was built in the 1980s and yet still looks like it came from outerspace. Famed for the David Černý sculptures of black alien babies crawling along its pillars (they were removed for cleaning recently and will be back in spring 2018) it’s located in a hip residential neighborhood with a notable restaurant/bar/café scene.
