In a small area you will get to know the depth of the dark days of Europe in WW II. See what real heros go thru and the fateful decisions they made willingly. It is terrific that they are keeping this story available for people to see. While not easy to find, it is worth the effort.

This small church on the outskirts of Old Town (easily reachable by tram) is the setting for an incredibly moving memorial to Czech and Slovak resistance fighters who were parachuted into the Prague area in 1941 with the mission of assassinating Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi "Protector" of Prague. The entire story is told in panels with photographs in a small... More

The memorial to the heydrich terror is a real must see when in Prague. We went early in the morning and there were only a couple of people there which was good as there is a lot to read. You become so involved in the story of what happened to the brave paratroopers and the crypt where they met their... More

Managed to track down this Church.....the Czech/Slovac soldiers who dispatched the 'Hangman of a Prague' - Reinhadt Heydrich also know as the 'Reich Protector of Moravia', sought sanctuary here in 1942. It was a privalage to visit the site of this defiant act of defiance to Nazi tyranny.

This was a much more visceral experience than some others I have had in historical buildings, perhaps because it is so small and the history is so singular and specific. There is a lot of reading in the outer room but this adds well to your understanding of what happened here if you were otherwise unaware. There are many accompanying... More

The cathedral is within easy walking distance of the National Theatre and contains, in the crypt where they died, a museum dedicated to the Special Operations Executive agents who assassinated Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich was in charge of SS operations in Bohemia and was feared by both civilians and fellow SS leaders. He was assassinated as he made his way to... More

Awesome story of the paratroopers hideout after the assassination of a Nazi officer. I wouldn't recommend small children for this. We couldn't see the inside of the church because a baptism was going on and they weren't letting tourists in. The memorial on the side of the church is so moving.

This church is where members of the check resistance fought there last stand against the SS following the assassination of Reinhart Heydrich, a major player in creating the holocaust during the Second World War. The crypt, with it's bullet holes, is well worth a visit as it tells a story of astonishing sacrifice and courage.

Read the novel 'The visible world' by Mark Slouka, then visit the place where it all took place: the crypt of this church. Very impressive to see where these heroic men of the Czech resistance were holed up for weeks, then met their deaths.
