Firstly, I would like to say that this attraction is mainly for the WWII historic event that took place in the crypt under the St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral. An event that most people have overlooked and even though people who have looked hasn’t given major importance to it, WW II history buffs know exactly what I am talking... More

After watching the film 'Operation Daybreak' (based on actual events during World War 2), I finally visited this church on my 10th trip to Prague! So glad I did. The crypt is so atmospheric and the little museum is a wonderful tribute to the very brave men who lost their lives there.

We could not get inside, because the church opens at 9.30. We were disappointed. But we liked what we saw outside.

The memorial is set out very well so people unfamiliar with the story (like myself) have a chance to read enough detail to fully grasp what happened within the crypt and why. Before entering it. I found it a very moving and humbling experice with the bullet holes and descriptions of the individuals. It is a very respectful memorial and... More

I highly recommend visiting this Church & Memorial to these 7 brave parachutists. Small but very humbling to stand in this location to pay respect. A bit of a walk from old town centre but worth it once you get there. A very important part of Czech history that we must continue to be reminded of. Make the effort to... More

For anyone interested in this episode in history, this place is a must. Very moving thinking of these young men's sacrifice for their country. Costs next to nothing to get in. Getting in and out the metal door is a challenge but I feel that's intentional. So pleased to have seen this place. The young lady at reception was most... More

As you flick through places of interest via Trip Advisor, this came up as a option. Good walking distant from Old Town and good way to discover restaurants and shops on the way back. This is very well laid out and informative with additional back ground information given to understand the effect, their courage, was so worth while. MarkC

Unless your are one of those whose just like walking in the baking sun, I suggest you to catch the No. 22 to the top of the hill and walk downwards. The view over stunning Prague is amazing it is well worth it. What made it better was walking down and seeing the sheer volume of people walking up, red... More

One of the first things we did while in the Czech Republic was visit Ledice so our visit to this cathedral's crypt built on and reinforced our knowledge and understanding of this sad piece of Czech history. The weather was hot and the crypt provided us refuge as it did for the parachutists in 1942.

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.
