Overview

About Hotel Ještěd

Architect designed TV tower and hotel at the top of the Jizerské mountains

From the middle of 19th Century the top of Ještěd has welcomed walkers with a refreshment stop, however when the lookout tower caught fire in 1963 the opportunity to build something more spectacular was recognized. For 3 years designs were considered on the theme of a TV transmission tower, separate restaurant with small hotel. However architect Karel Hubáček entered with a radical design that combined them all to universal acclaim. The mountain top location demanded the use of new construction methods and materials as the TV transmitter antennas needed to be enclosed within the structure to cope with the severe climatic conditions.

In 1969 the architectural solution was awarded the world renowned Perret prize, and in 2000 was awarded the title of the Best Czech Building of the 20th Century.

Amazing view in award winning architectural design
