The most dramatic duel between the czech resistance and the nazi occupants happent in this church. The group of seven parachutist fighted again cca 800 SS soldiers and some gestapo officers. Even though the nazis offered them several times capitulation, parachutis always reffused and after 6 hours killed themselfs

Informative exhibition which gives a thorough account of the events of the Heydrich assassination. It makes a moving read before you even enter the crypt where the poor soldiers spent their last moments. Well worth a couple of hours of your trip.

As has been well documented the crypt below the church was the last hiding place of Jan Kubis and other Czech patriots that assassinated Reinhard Heydrich during the second world war. The history and all the details of their end is clearly documented in English, visitors can pass through into the actual area of the crypt where they all committed... More

This is a memorial at the sight where a group of brave Cezch paratroopers, trained in England, and that carried out the attempt to kill Nazi SS Heydrich, were hidding after the attempt. They were betrayed and when Nazi troops attacked the crypt, they fought until their last ammunition was left and preferred to commit suicide before being captured. The... More

Thought this would be just a small memorial for the paratroopers, with the plaque outside etc etc. but what a great informative history lesson.i left feeling very moved. The museum portion is well done.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
