"I am a world traveler and in every city I visit if there is a Segway company with good ratings I have used. That said I would give PragueSegway.com 5 stars all the way. The only company that ever offered to bring the Segways to us rather having to find a meeting place. Big, Big plus. On time, very professional, extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend and worth every penny. We had a three hour tour. !!!!!!!!" More Comments

Praguesegway.com introduces you to the Žižkov TV Tower

Praguesegway.com believes the Žižkov TV Tower could possibly be Prague's most underrated or overrated attraction depending on your point of view. You see, no matter where you go or look throughout Prague, this tower will be somewhat noticeable from every vantage point throughout the city, during your Segway Tour. The tower -- featuring a lookout tower and restaurant, was constructed in 1985 to 1992 by architect Václav Aulický and structural engineer Jiří Kozák standing 216 meters (709 feet) high. More pics & specs

The structure of the tower (unconventional in design) is based on a geometrical design to what resembles a triangle, whose corners go up in steel columns, consisting of three tubes, each with a double steel wall, filled with concrete. They support nine 'pods' and three decks for transmitting equipment. Many Czech natives believe the tower was built in a potential defense against Freedom, that the tower had planned to be used as a jamming device against western radio and television transmissions (potentially Radio Free Europe) and also to be potentially used as a communications facility for Warsaw Pact forces in the event of an attack on (or by) NATO.

Whatever the case, it dominates the skyline throughout Prague, and like it or love it, it's here to stay. So upon riding your Segway throughout Prague's many cobblestone streets visiting the historical attractions, just glaze up into the sky and you are sure to catch a glimpse of this architectural marvel some call Jake's Finger (former Secretary of the Communist Party - who resigned after the Velvet Revolution One thing you may notice about the tower in close up pictures are babies crawling up the steel pillars, yes babies.

This eclectic design came from Prague's own (controversial) sculptor - David Černý who's claim to fame came in 1991 after painting a Soviet tank pink, to serve as a war memorial in central Prague. A larger rendition of the same babies can be seen in Kampa Park, which unfortunately cannot be seen via a Segway, due to the camp banning Segways 2 years ago. However, there are still countless areas one can tour by Segway, and is highly recommended as a way to see Prague, notorious for it's cobble-stoned streets and vast hills leading up to Prague Castle. Praguesegway.com welcomes you to tour this great city on a Segway and recommends at least a 2 - hour Segway tour (best value - 3 hour Segway tour) in order to take advantage of the ground you'll be able to cover while riding your Segway.

Praguesegway.com offers you a brief look at "Memorial of the Victims of Communism

Praguesegway.com offers you a brief look at "Memorial of the Victims of Communism by Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek and architects Jan Kerel and Zdenek Hoelzel. A unique look into some of the darkest days in Prague under communism, specifically after the invasion of 1968 by the Soviet regime. It contains seven unique sculptures depicting phases of a man living in a totalitarian state "evaporating" over time as the first being a statue of a full-man up to the last where only a few remnants are present. This depiction of a man disappearing is due mostly in part on how the secret police, the removal of expression, and loss from freedom of thought eventually causes the ultimate crumbling of a man into basically a non-recognizable figure, and eventually into dust. Nevertheless, a sad time indeed for all during this horrific time.

Praguesegway.com displays it's passion for the arts in presenting you the Dancing House.

Designed in 1992 and completed in 1996, Prague’s Dancing House is an architectural marvel as it displays a bold design given the constraints of how communism sequestered bold thinking and radical ideas well into the 20th century. Praguesegway.com offers you a glimpse of this modern day attraction on many of our tours designed to educate while providing a unique journey throughout Prague via a Segway.

Designed by a Czech-Croatian architect Vlado Milunić along with Canadian – American architect Frank Gehry, the Dancing House was originally named the house of Fred and Ginger (after famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers), but is now rarely used due to (Gehry’s) fear of being ridiculed – and called “cheesy” for involving American culture into Prague’s rebirth into a capitalistic society, therefore abandoned it. Nevertheless, it has historical roots of being one of the locations bombed by the U.S. in 1945, and the adjacent lot was home to Václav Havel (Czechia’s first President) and parents during his childhood. Praguesegway.com offers this attraction any many more when you book a Segway Tour with us. Come share our passion for showing you Prague “through our eyes.”
