The famous Zizkov Tower will get an upgrade

enlightened zizkov tower The tower started to broadcast seventeen years ago, and at the time its futuristic design and 216 metres of height raised much dispute. Now, when it is newly and nicely illuminated, with the inherent babies crawling up by the artist Cerny, the tower belongs to positive dominants of Prague.

After the years of service, an upgrade became necessary, as the Czech Republic broadcasting is now in digital quality. And the action itself will be something that could fit into Hollywood blockbuster, as the new tip of the tower will be brought on the spot by the Russian helicopter Ka-32, which has two machines and can carry 12 700 kg.

The flying derrick is to replace the antenna during September 2008. During that time, there may be no-entry zone around the whole Zizkov tower zone because of obvious security reasons.
