Named after the square above – and initially in fact called Jiřího náměstí – the underground station Jiřího z Poděbrad in Vinohrady, between Praha 2 and Praha 3 districts, serves the Žižkov Television Tower neighborhood.
Opened on 19th of December 1980 as part of the second section of metro line A, it was designed by architect Anna Hübschmannová for DP-Metroprojekt.
The vestibule and the pillars are tiled with marble, while the floors are paved in granite.
The tunnel is covered in fine anodized aluminium plates in a tasteful and stylish match of elegant peacock blue and shiny golden yellow.
The original escalator still carries passengers up and down the depth of 45 metres.
