Currently in Czech Republic they do not use Cyrillic alphabet but still they have this Cyril and Methodius cathedral. Very interesing to see inside what they demonstrate there. Also some narrow corridors and big space in the rooms with books and small exposition. Would like to have more suveniers from this place.

My wife and I visited the Crypt which houses the memorial to the Czechoslovak paratroopers who died there following the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich ( Operation Anthropoid). It is a storey of the bravery of the Czechoslovak people and the horrors of the Nazi occupation and retribution. A deeply moving experience.

I was recommended this church as a place to visit during a trip to Prague, it's a little off the beaten track, but certainly worth a visit. In 1942, during World War II, the cathedral was the scene of the last stand of a number of Czech and Slovak patriots who, in Operation Anthropoid, had assassinated Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi...

I had read previous reviews and I'm also very glad that we visited, the story is incredible and an Australian who has an interest in war history shouldn't miss this opportunity. I was very moved by the story and being in the same place as these brave men. The exhibition is very moving and you can take as long as... More

This is a tiny little museum and well worth seeking out. It is simple in it's set up but the story is absolutely engrossing. I actually got more out of this than the main tourist sites. Will probably take about an hour of your day and that is an hour well worth it. Be careful to note the entrance is... More

Having seen the film "Operation Daybreak" which told the story of the Czech resistance fighters who assassinated Heidrich-the Reich Protector of Czechoslovakia in 1941 I was curious to see for myself the church where they hid and their final standoff took place. The crypt of the church where these men resisted all German attempts to capture them and where they... More

Very interesting display telling the story of the assassination of Heydrich and the Czech resistance during WW2. Then you can visit the crypt were the Czech soldiers held out from the German army. Very reasonable admission fee, worth the 10 minute walk from the city centre.

Difficult to put in words. This is an unassuming cathedral, a bit dirty and 'normal' on the outside. What happened here 70 years ago was far from normal. As soon as you enter the Crypt you feel overwhelmed by the historical importance of this place and leave humbled and grateful to the men who gave their lives in that small... More

Excellent little museum in the crypt. Telling about the courageous soldiers who assassinated Heydrech "the butcher of Prague". . The crypt was where the brave Czech soldiers hid out but were betrayed. A gun battle ensued with the Nazis, and they held them off for a while. The suffered attempts of smoking them out. And attempts to flood them, by... More

Interesting monument to the victims of the Heydrich terror of 1942, otherwise a regular orthodox church (but without all the icons)
