Fodor's Review

Looking like a freakish, futuristic rocket ready to blast off, the Žižkov TV Tower is easily visible from around the city and perennially makes it onto Top 10 World's Ugliest Buildings list. The upper-floor platform, reached by a high-speed elevator, gives a bird's-eye view of the numerous courtyards and apartment blocks that make up the city. There's also a bar, restaurant, and luxury hotel up there. Once back down on the ground, look up its 709-foot gray steel legs

at the bronze statues of babies crawling on the structure, which were created by local provocateur artist David Černy.
