Didn't know about the part played by this place in the history of WWII and resistence against the Germans. From the outside you have a glimpse of it by the wall where people were executed for having killed German Officials. Inside, much more of this history and a beautiful homege to those fallen. A must go.

Having seen Operation Daybreak many times, I had to visit this church, and I wasn't disappointed. Very brave men, both the soldiers and the civilians. Who knows, had Heydrich lived, and hitler died, the result of WW2 could have been very different. If we'd had time, we'd have visited the memorial at Lidice, but that'll have to wait for another...

Was very informative. My husband wanted to visit here during our trip to Prague as he is very interested in the war. I too found it very interesting

After hearing the story of the assassination of the Nazi governor Heydrich from Ross, our guide from Prague Airport Transfers, we had to see the place where the brave Czech soldiers fought their last stand. The church itself is unexceptional but the crypt has an excellent exhibition in the foyer, then a very moving memorial to the soldiers inside the... More

If you've watched the movie, "Operation Daybreak," and also the History Channel's stories about "Operation Anthropoid," you will NOT want to miss visiting this place. If you've not see either or both, and you are traveling to Prague, may I suggest you do so, then visit this cathedral ! This church became very well-known after the World War II when... More

We did not know quite what to expect, maybe a plaque on thee wall of the church. In fact there is a dedicated memorial in the crypt to the heroes of the Heydrich Rheinhart incident. The first room is like many other museum exhibitions, telling the story of events. However when you go through the metal door, inspired by the... More

And you will understand why this place is so special. It's always nice to learn about real heroes and then go somewhere you can honor their memory.

Clearly shows bullet holes from when the Germans tried to get to the paratroopers, easy to find just off Charles square.

It's not the typical massive cathedral but it does offer quite a history for those who enjoy getting knowledge about history. Not really a popular attraction for tourists but a visit will not be in vain.

We walked 20 minutes from the clock and the church is closed . They told us it only opens during services. The museum is open and you pay a small fee. It was ok but nothing to get out of your way

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.
