Factoid: This song begins with a chime and a female voice announcing:

"Ukončete výstup a nástup, dveře se zavírají. Příští stanice: Jiřího z Poděbrad."

In the Czech language, this means: "Cease exiting and entering, the doors are closing. The next station is Jiřího z Poděbrad." This is a message played on Metro trains in Prague, Czech Republic, when departing a station (only now they have added "prosím"("please")).

The station Jiřího z Poděbrad is located under a square of the same name, named in honor of George of Poděbrady (Jiří z Poděbrad in Czech), who was a wise King of Bohemia in the 15th century, after the Hussite Wars.

Albeit pretty, the station isn't remarkable in any way, and I certainly wonder why Radiohead chose to slap this in there.
