This was on my to do list and it didn't disappoint. The information boards give a wonderful history to the events of 1942 including photographs, video footage and items from the unfortunate episode. The whole visit including both church and crypt was an emotional experience but well worth it.

Worth the 20 minute walk from the city core to this church. Exhibits display an interesting history of the resistance and the build up to the assassination with interesting artefacts. Entering the crypt gives you a nice, claustrophobic idea of what the trapped paratroopers faced, surrounded by 800 SS stormtroopers. Bullet holes are visible everywhere in the concrete, especially around... More

The scene of the death of the Czech patriots who assassinated Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi governor of Bohemia. In the crypt is a small museum which sets the scene, tells their story, and of the brutal Nazi reprisals.

As part of a tour group we learned such a lot of the history of Prague which included this venue. Not really suitable for small children, wait until they can appreciate the history and architecture

I lived in Europe through High School and have been dragged through many museums and churches. As an adult it's nice to pick and choose which ones you view. Well, this one had so many great reviews we decided to check it out. We were both very moved. I would add this to your list - it won't take much... More

Czech commandos killed Reinhard Heydrich in June 1942 in Prague. SS, gestapo and Wehrmacht did everything to catch them. Commandos were hidden in this church in Reslova street, and here they were found due to betrayal. Germans tried to get them alive, but all Czech fighters died in fight or killed themself. It was biggest heroism of Czech soldiers in... More

If you have the smallest interest in WW2 and the Nazi occupation this is worth a visit. The small museum outside the crypt gives masses of information on the plot to assassinate Heydrich & the men who carried it out.The crypt itself is a memorial to the men who died in the church after a shoot out .

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.
