Ještěd Tower is a 94 meter-tall television transmitter and hotel integrated into one, built on the top of Ještěd mountain near Liberec in the Czech Republic. The hyperboloid shape of the structure was chosen because it naturally extends the silhouette of the hill as well as resist the extreme climate conditions on the top of the hill. In the Tower's lowest sections it houses a hotel and a tower restaurant. It was built in the second half of the 1960s and designed by architect Karel Hubáček who received the Perret´s Prize of the International Union of Architects for it.

The tower and the mountain is located approximately 6 kms from the center of Liberec and serves as a dominant attraction in the city. The monument is accessible by road and also by cable car from the foot of the mountain.
