Hidden Prague

Visitors flock to the Czech capital to stand on Charles Bridge and climb up to the monumental Prague Castle, but the city’s maze of cobbled lanes, hidden courtyards and local bars is still a boon for explorers.

1 ŽIŽKOV TV TOWER

Prague’s tallest landmark is the futuristic (and some say ugly) TV Tower. But more bizarre still are the 10 giant crawling babies that appear to be exploring the outside – an installation called Miminka, by artist David Černý. Inside, there’s an observation deck with futuristic hanging armchairs, a café, cocktail bar and restaurant (towerpark.cz; Mahlerovy Sady 1, Žižkov; 8am–midnight; £6).

The 216-metre TV Tower was built between 1985 and 1992
