I always top here and go into the crypt. Czech and Slovak paratroopers assassinated the architect of the killing of the Jews decided at the Wannsee Conference, Reichprotektor Reynhard Heydrich. He died slowly of an infected bullet wound caused by horse hair from the seat of his Mercedes. The paratroopers were trapped in this church and fought it out valiantly... More

A sad place even before you walk into the chamber where the soldiers were killed. There's still a scent of death or it could be my imagination. Still one of the place to visit. Do spend your time to read the stories on the wall.

This church is quite away from the old town, but was easily accessible by walking down the road aside the river and turning left at the second bridge after the Charles Bridge. You can enter the foyer of the church and look in via the glass panels. The museum itself is in the crypt of the church. The museum is... More

The story behind this place is amazing. It would be on my must do list for Prague. 75 czk for an adult entry. Such a sad spot for their final moments but they will be remembered forever. If you can't find it, it is Just up from the dancing building on the opposite side of the street. Very nicely laid... More

This is where the group of Czech soldiers who flew in from England to assassinate Heydrich made their last stand - you can still see the bullet marks in the wall outside. n a photographic exhibition when you enter the cathedral, and then you go down into the crypt where the men held out until they finally committed suicide rather...

I was moved when I watched the film on TV of the assassination of the Nazi butcher Heydrich and the visit to the Cathedral was definitely another moving experience recounting the resistance put up by his assassins. Very informing and well worth a visit.

This Cathedral on Karlinske namesti is nice and all around are old buidings,where citizens live. And so many nice pubs, like Charleston and Lokal Hamburk, where we meet real Czech and Prague people.

The little church itself could just be by-passed easily as one of many, but do spend some time in the basement and follow the story of the men that took their last stand in the crypt of the church after the assassination of SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich. My partner knew the story of the men and was keen to see the... More

A piece of history that should not be forgotten. The museum tells the story and the crypt holds a bleak but so true memorial for the events and people involved in those events - the terror of Heydrich and how that terror was removed. Doesnt take much of your time - but the time is well spent, even if this... More

From the moment you walk up to the Cathedral seeing the year '1942' in tiles on the sidewalk, it speaks of a unique time that history was made here. A monument is located outside, with a museum to the firefight between Czech patriots and Nazi troops here in 1942. The church is impressive in itself. Even if no historical event... More

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.
