We came in knowing nothing about this event and were able to learn the sequence of the whole event based on their signs and information. It inspired me to learn more about the event and the people involved! The event refers to Czechs who assassinated Heydrich and the events that took place as a result between the Czech resistance and... More

It was a sobering tour but well worth the visit to understand life in Prague during WWII . Historical events presented here seems like it could be a next major movie . I now want to read more about this event .

Having read the story and watched the films the importance of what happened and what was sacrificed here, goes down in European history.

I wandered in here for Christmas day services, though I am not Orthodox. It was still a moving and lovely experience. Even as an obvious tourist I felt welcomed during and after the mass. The priest came out to greet us "hangers on" about 30 minutes after the service was over, and he actually came to greet me and welcome... More

A small, humble museum telling the story of men who sacrificed themselves for their people. The actual scene of the events is something that moved me a great deal. A must in Prague.

This is not a well traveled sight for most that come to Prague, but when you learn the history, this is a place you will want to visit. It is very well done and we are so happy we went.

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.
