In close proximity to the transmitter, there is a Jewish cemetery with an interesting history. It was open for a relatively short time from the end of the 17th century to the mid-18th century during the plague epidemic and the War of the Austrian Succession. During the 1960s, part of the cemetery gave way to the Mahlerovy sady (gardens). In the 1990s, the cemetery was again reduced further for the building of the Žižkov Tower. The Jewish tombstones removed during the first interference with the cemetery during communism were subsequently used as paving on 28. října street, which leads from Wenceslas Square to Národní třída.
