The memorial to the victims of the nazi occupation and particularly those associated with the assassination of Heydich is fantastic. The displays of original documents and the memorials within the crypt are very moving.

Very interesting exhibit in lower level where the Czech army paratroopers who assassinated the Nazi governor were killed. They were betrayed by another member of the Resistance. The cathedral is upriver from the Old Town near a park and well worth a visit. The upper church was closed but a glassed in entrance makes it possible to see the decorations... More

The crypt is quiet and gives time to reflect on the horrors of what the nazi occupation of Prague meant. The very personal stories of the men who made their last stand in the church is beautiful as well as sad. Not many tourists here and a perfect little stop.

Being a World Was II buff understanding the importance of the assassination of Reinhardt Heydrich was important for my children to see and understand. St Cyril gives us a very good understanding as to the heroism and sacrifices made to rid the world of a very evil man. The number of people who died in retribution for the assassination was... More

Whether you visit because of history ( Church or otherwise) this is a peaceful contemplative place. The nearby cemetery is well worth a visit and seems highly esteemed by Czech population

The church is small and simple. The church nave is behind glass and is a monument to the Czech people and there resilience against ongoing invaders. My friend, use to many lavish and decadent churches in Prague was somewhat disappointed . However the importance to me is the relationship with my father who was born in Czechoslovakia. One must visit... More

This cathedral is located a little out of the old town of Prague 1, but is worth the walk up the hill. It is still in use so consideration needs to shown to worshippers and please don't use flashes inside
