Nice view and cool office
Jun 2019 • Family
If you are in the Zlin area as a tourist, then you might want to check out Bata's Skyscraper, otherwise known as Building 21. The biggest feature to this building is Bata's own office, which is actually an elevator. Bata had his office built as a large elevator, so he could go from floor to floor himself, without having people come to him. The elevator is now an exhibit, but it is still functional and you can go up to the roof in it. At the roof you can a great view of Zlin from all directions. It's not Zlin's most alluring attraction, but one that is worth visiting if you are in the area and have the time. I recommend it.

Good view from the top

If you're in Zlin, then a visit to the top of Building 21 is definitely worth it. This was one of the first high-rise buildings in Europe - actually the second tallest pre-war skyscraper after the Boerentoren in Antwerp. Last time we visited we took the paternoster lift, which was a bit of fun if slightly alarming. We were disappointed to find it out of action this time. Not sure if that's a temporary thing, or if it's fallen prey to health and safety rules. The office-in-a-lift was functional though. There's a good view from the top, and we enjoyed the coffee from the restaurant.

The view from there is pretty good.

Leaving the story of Bata, this building contains some memorabilia of the time where it used to make shoes but going all the way to the top (not using the bizarre rolling elevator) will give you an unparallel point of view of the city (Zlin doesn't have many tall buildings).

At the top, you might want to stop and have a coffee and a cake. Honestly, the view is gorgeous.

The visit is free but there is a café located on the rooftop so you can spend some more time there if you want.

Free to visit, but do have a coffee at the sky café
Jun 2017 • Couples
An all round beautiful view of Zlin. Well worth the visit, especially on a sunny day.

We had coffee and cake at the sky café. The service and coffee was OK. The cake was delicious.

Looks like it might be a great little sky bar on a Friday or Saturday evening.

Better to visit when sky is clear

Unfortunately, I was visiting in winter, weather was foggy, so could not admire all the view. Nevertheless, it was great to see whole city from above and get to know istory of the skyscraper.
