Zizkovska Televizni Vez (Prague TV Tower), Prague, CZ, 2005
The Zizkovska Televizni Vez, or Prague TV tower, is the tallest structure in Prague. The tower is 216 metres high, but in terms of elevation above sea level at the top, it's higher than the Empire State Building in New York. Meters above sea level don't really count, though. :-) The tower features an observation deck (although regrettably not at the top), a restaurant (expensive, but probably worth it if you're a tourist), and of course several television and radio transmitters. I took this from Petrin Hill, which is 50 minutes away by public transport, and it still absolutely dominates everything around it. There almost is no skyline without it!!!
