We made our way to the church while having a long walk along the riverside. Having read about the events and seen the film Operation Daybreak, it has long been on my list of places to visit in the city. The information boards, and then the exhibits in the crypt itself were very informative and interesting. It's a very moving... More

Having watched and loved the movie Operation Daybreak, I was pleased to discover this building had survived the war and the bullet scarred window to the crypt hadn't been touched. You can also visit the inside of the crypt (for the very small cost of around £2.50) where the heroes of Operation Anthropoid ended their story and read up on... More

There were three reasons for my pre-Christmas trip to Prague - their legendary beer (job done), the promise of festive shopping opportunities (slightly less successful) and the chance to pay tribute to the men and women of Operation Anthropoid. A story that was well known to me thanks to the 1975 film "Operation Daybreak", St Cyril's was my first stop... More

I had high expectations after seeing these reviews and you are in a box that goes 5 feet inside the church. You look at that for 5 min then go into the Tombs and read what seems like books for about 30min. It is a little interesting but this is in the bottom 5 things I did in Prague

The site of the tragic end of the brave men involved in Operation Anthropoid - it really brings home just how brave these young men were, true heroes, when you realise that when they were there they must have known that there was way out. The church is a sobering reminder of the sacrifice that was made. It is neither... More

The crypt and associated museum (only one room) is one of the best expositions I have ever seen about this critical and central event in Czech history. With clear explanations in a chronology over the relevant period and limited but quality exhibits, this is one exhibition that should not be missed in Prague. The crypt itself is a very moving...

If you are into World War II history, or have watched the film "Operation Daybreak", then this is a must. Very, very moving, to be in the crypt were history was made. The museum tells a heart breaking story of the attempted assignation of Heidrich.

I absolutely loved St. Vitus. The stained glass windows are spectacular and the arched ceilings are amazing!

This is an amazing place for anyone with an interest in military history. Watch the film Operation Daybreak before you visit here it will make the visit even better.
