Photographer's Note

Prague is full of them, endless mechanical stairs that transport you from the surface to the metro plattforms or vice-versa. They are devilishly quick, so if you have some problem of hert, better that you walk...if you dare!. This stairs belong to the underground station of Jiřího z Poděbrad, in the "A" line, very near to the Žižkov Television Tower. The station was named after George of Podebrady,King of Bohemia (1458-1471). It was opened in 1978, the Jiřího z Poděbrad is an underground trispan station. The main materials used on walls and ceilings are anodized aluminium, marble and granite. The only exit leads to an underground vestibule, which is connected with the platform by escalator tunnel.
At the beginning of the Radiohead song "A Reminder," the female voice of the Metro's automated announcement system can be heard announcing this station.
Hope you like it my friends!
************************
Praga está repleta de ellas, interminables ecaleras mecánicas que te llevan desde la superfície hasta los andenes del metro y viceversa. Son endiabladamente empinadas y rápidas, por lo que si teneis algún problema de corazón mejor que subais andando...si os atreveis!.
Estas escaleras pertenecen a la estación de la linea "A", Jiřího z Poděbrad, muy cercana a la torre de telecomunicaciones Žižkov. Esta estación fué inaugurada en 1978, y los materiales utilizados en los muros y techos son el aluminio anodizado, mármol y granito. La única entrada cponduce a un vestíbulo conectado con los andenes por la escalera de la imágen.
Al início de la canción "A reminder", de Radiohead, se escucha la voz que anúncia esta estación.
Espero que os guste, amigos!
