Telephone Exchange Žižkov Prague 3 - International Telephone and Telegraph Exchange in Fibichova street
The unique Žižkov panorama is, besides the Žižkov TV Tower, formed also by the building of the International Telephone and Tepegraph Exchange. It stretches on the boundary of  Fibichova, Křížkovského and Kubelíkova streets. The building was constructed between 1922 – 1925. The construction was performed under the supervision of Bohumír Kozák, a significant 20th century  Czech architect, whose most noted constructions are e.g. the building of Thomayer University Hospital in Prague - Krč, or the house of radio station in Poděbrady. The decoration of the front face of the exchange was the work of Ladislav Kofránek, who performed his four plastic sculptures in 1926. The two mighty column towers, which raise above the neighbouring houses with dignity, are the dominating feature of the whole building.

International Telephone and Telegraph Exchange in Fibichova street Opening of a new exchange
The ceremonious opening of the International Telephone and Telegraph Exchange took place on June 19th, 1927. More than one hundred and twenty intercity and international conduicts were connected to the new exchange. The exchange was employing three hundred and fifty people. Each of the exchange workplaces was equipped by the manual switches of the Siemens-Halske system. The main goal of the telephone exchange was connecting the calls. Consequently the building belonged to Český Telecom (Czech Telecom), the predecessor of Telefónica O2 company.
