Žižkov Television Tower

It doesn't get much stranger than the Žižkov Television Tower in Prague. Standing at 709 feet tall, the building features 6 observation pods with the highest offering a panoramic view of Prague at 328 feet. Crawling baby sculptures by Czech artist David Černý were added to the sides of the tower in 2000 as a temporary installation, but were kept permanently after the public expressed their admiration of the art.
