I am very interested in WW11 history - and this Church and its role in Prague's role in history was on my must do list. Even for people not or only slightly interested in WW11 the displays/exhibits exactly recount the events of those sad and tragic times. Other reviewers have more eloquently and precisely described the incidents and the aftermath... More

We had been advised to visit the Cathedral by our tour guide on the castle tour. It was full of information about the assassination of Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich in Prague, bullet holes can be seen on the Cathedral walls and full history of the events that followed the assassination. worth a visit.

Very moving and informative. Still the same as the day the Germans surrounded the place and killed the brave paratroopers holed up in he crypt. Definitely worth a visit if interested in WW2 in Prague.

I was aware of the significance, but I wasn't prepared for how moved I would be. The memorial is in the crypt -not a large space, but very well presented, with captions In Czech and English. I expected to spend maybe 20 minutes there; I spent an hour. I hope visitors go up to visit the actual cathedral, which is... More

The location of where assassins hid from the Nazis . The crypt has a memorial to all of the 7 commandoes who were a part of the plot to assassinate Heydrich , Hitlers top military man at the time.. You can still see the bullet holes in the walls of the crypt.

As a history buff this location was high on the list of musts to see in Prague. Quiet, understated and letting the environs tell the story. Kubus, Gabcik and the other's bravery is inspirational and must not be forgotten. It was very quiet when we were there so knowing the story and alone in the crypt let's your imagination take...

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.
