We had to search for St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral. This is where we learned in greater detail about Operation Anthropoid from World War II. This is a memorial to all of the men that were involved in this event. They were ordinary men that did extraordinary things for their country, one of the best examples of courage and... More

The story of Reinhard Heydrich's assassination by a team of British-trained Czech and Slovak soldiers and their ultimate fate at this location is well presented in this solemn memorial. We had the privilege of visiting when it was very quiet (late morning) and had the opportunity to read through all of the comprehensive display of text and photographs relating to... More

We walked by and noticed the small shrine. It didn't seem too special until the grumpy tourist (GT) figured out that this was THE place where the Heidrech assassins hid. The museum is very well done and well worth the small fee. We have talked about this ever since and it was the highlight of GT's Prague trip.

Very poignant to relive the last hours of the brave men in the Czech Resistance - how they were routed from the Cathedral by the German troops after they had attempted to assassinate Heidrech the SS officer in charge of the German troops in Prague. The entrance to the museum is situated on the left under the main steps to... More

This is a must if your a history buff, poignant and rather upsetting try and get there earlier rather than later its such a personal experience being in the crypt itself. there is a small fee to get in but worth every penny. excellent museum that tells the whole story.

we looked for this having read the story of the catherdal and to see the bullet holes and visited the crypt and read the story inside it was well worth the 75Kc charge.

This was a very moving and sad visit. In 1942 7 Czech resistance fighters took refuge in the crypt of this cathedral after assassinating SS General Reinhard Heydrich 'the butcher of Prague'. There isn't enough room here to fully explain - but it's a story of amazing bravery, courage and sacrifice which makes you appreciate the freedoms we have today.

We called in here on the recommendation of friends. The information is well presented and interesting and sets the scene for the crypt itself. The place was empty when we visited which made it so much better and we could take our time absorbing everything. Such a significant part of WWII should not be missed.

I had learnt the story of these brave men and their betrayal the day before from our tour guide and was interested to see where it all happened. The information and pictures of the people involved are clearly and well displayed bringing home the terrible violent reprisals that were dealt out to the brave ordinary people who helped and sheltered...

If you have read the book, you must go here. A small museum in the crypt below the church will bring the history to life. Only 75 Czech crowns to get in (about £2.50) and well worth it. If you are interested in war history, seek out the military museum afterwards. It's free,
