Žižkov Television Tower is one of the landmarks of Prague and, at the same time, the tallest construction in the city – it contains the highest-positioned stable point in the city. The construction is formed by three steel tubes. In the main tube there are two passenger lifts, in the other one there is a service lift and in the third one there is a staircase. There is a lookout cabin for visitors at 97 metres. 10 giant statues of babies are mounted to the tower – Babies by sculptor David Černý. The observatory floor is formed by three cabins and a communication room, where visitors can watch an interesting film depicting the Žižkov Tower from its very beginning up to now. Each of the three cabins has a different topic and allows to see the most interesting and beautiful places of Prague from a completely different point of view. The construction is controversial as it was built at the place of the Old Jewish Cemetery of Olšany, which had been destroyed because of it.
