Regina DAB Praha, the local radio station of Český rozhlas, Czech radio. They had an open house!
A nice hallway upstairs with pretty views of the street.
A nice place to have a spot of lunch or coffee.
Main staircase, quite grand.
Love the ornamental light fixtures!
Matching fixtures for the ceiling.
The studio for recording big groups or orchestras.
Several levels for the different instruments, making an orchestra comfortable.
Many monitors in the booth.
Colorful acoustic tiles, complementing the On Air light.
A small studio for smaller groups
A tiny studio for soloists or a duet.
Shipping crates in the stairway
Old reel-to-reel editing deck in the hallway as decoration.
Watching a radio announcer at work.
Learning about the life of an announcer. The tour was in Czech, which unfortunately I don't speak!
Some possible future radio show hosts!
Visiting the newsroom, scattering ourselves amongst the reporters' and editors' cubicles.
Much was said by our guide, but it was in Czech, so I concentrated on photos.
Getting out of our Uber in the Žižkov district, we are greeted by the Žižkov Television Tower.
We are here to visit the Czech telecommunications infrastructure building, CETIN
Examples of old phones in the lobby.
A rather nicely cased teletype machine. Rather classy! I used beige-yellow metal ones...
On the roof, of the tower, with microwave antennae. Looking to the northeast here.
