Růžička Station (pronounced [ruːʒɪt͡ʃka]) (Czech: Růžičkovo Nádraží) is a train station in Prague. It seems to be the city's central hub station as it uses maglev trains, unlike the other stations in Prague.
In the late 2029, Růžička Station is destroyed in a bomb explosion. Investigation of the bombing makes up the central plot of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The main mission M5: Claiming Jurisdiction takes place at the Růžička Station.
In late 2029, the station is destroyed in a bomb explosion. The bombing was orchestrated by an Illuminati-controlled sleeper cell embedded in the Augmented Rights Coalition. Lucius DeBeers ordered the bombing, as part of a plan to carry out incidents that would turn public opinion against ARC and augmented people in general, in order to increase support for the passage of the Human Restoration Act. The bombing was perpetrated by Ivan Berk. Viktor Marchenko, the Illuminati's main inside man in ARC, promises Berk that he would become a "legend" by carrying out the bombing.
- Triangle code #11 on a raised ledge in the main hall.
- eBook "The Sleepwalking World: Human Depopulation" in the Dazzle shop, on the floor next to the chalk outline.
- Breach software in the server room, in-between the 2 small towers where the worker is.
- In the customs sections, bunched in with a large number of regular backage, is a weapon's case with a tranquilizer rifle, extra darts, and 9mm EMP ammunition. There's other, less notable loot in the area, as well. If you visit on the second or third day, there will be another generic case here, which contains two vials of nupoz.
- The station name is mispronounced as "roo-zi-kah" throughout the game. The correct pronunciation is "roo-zhitch-kah".
- Based on Marta Babik's emails and the "RE: 2 more" email on Simon Daniels' computer in Task Force 29 Headquarters, Marta is likely the woman Adam Jensen attempted to rescue in the cutscene following the train station bombing. Per Daniels' email, her son Lukáš survived because Marta shielded him from debris.
- During the second visit to Prague and afterwards, Růžička Station is still accessible via the subway system, however with the main entrance stairway blocked by a memorial wall, requiring the use of the vent system to get back inside the rest of the station. The police teams are no longer present, letting you explore at leisure.
- Růžička means "a little rose" in Czech. It is a common Czech and Slovak male surname.
- Růžička Station is apparently modeled after the present-day Prague Main Station (Praha hlavní nádraží).
- Presumably, it was renamed to Růžička Station after the death of Žofie Růžička, the fictitious first female president of the Czech Republic, much like the real-world Ruzyně International Airport was renamed to Václav Havel Airport after the death of Václav Havel, the real-world first president of Czech Republic.
