The district of Žižkov, located for the most part in Prague 3, has its own specific identity and independent vibe. The area is well-known for its typical pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy some of the finest beers!
For a nice view of Prague, take the lift to the top of Žižkov TV Tower, a striking symbol of the communist-era. You can continue on your way with a little bit of history and have a walk in Olšany Cemetery, the largest graveyard in Prague where lies Jan Palach, the Czech student who, in the wake of the brutal crushing of the Prague Spring, committed suicide in 1969 as a protest against the communist regime.
Transport links include a number of regular bus and trams stops which will bring you in a few minutes to the heart of Prague 1 during the day and night.
