Read the novel 'The visible world' by Mark Slouka, then visit the place where it all took place: the crypt of this church. Very impressive to see where these heroic men of the Czech resistance were holed up for weeks, then met their deaths.

This was the final refuge for the agents that assassinated Heydrich in 1943 and were betrayed by one of their own people. For a student of history this is a must see. A small but very detailed museum is at one end of the crypt along with an entrance to the main body where there are memorials to the men... More

It was definitely an honour and sad to visit this cathedral which has become a memorial to the victims of Nazi occupation and particularly with the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich. Seeing the original documents, photographs, and especially the crypt was a very moving experience for me.

I had no idea of this little piece of history but it's very interesting and moving. Look, you'll probably be about 50 yards away to see the "Dancing House" anyway; please, take the time and walk over here. You'll learn something and get a much better appreciation for a momentous time in Czech history and a tribute to their people.... More

What an amazing story! Quite a moving experience to enter the crypt where the soldiers were hidden after the assassination of Heydrich. A must see whether you are interested in WWII history or not.

There's an interesting exhibit just before you go into the crypt itself that tells you the heart breaking story of what happened here. When you then go into the crypt, it's obviously pretty bare, but if you know the story you can imagine what happened and what people went through here. A moving trip.

Moving historical site dedicated to the Heydrich martyrs, at the place where much of the story actually took place. Off the beaten path and offering a break from the crowds, but easy to get to (we took Tram 22 to the Well done whether you already know the story or not - you will learn it by visiting. Interesting not... More

Had a quick visit to the Church on a recent visit to Prague. They close at 5pm on weekdays in summer and I got there with 30 mins to look around. They had some nice displays relating to the group of soldiers that were involved with the assasination. It was a very sobering experience to go into the crypt where... More

Most people visit to see the place of the World War 2 massacre by the Nazis. However the church itself is now a functioning Orthodox Church where I attended services one Sunday that was performed in Slavonic for the most part. It was originally built for another denomination but converted about 100 years ago.

This church is famous from the WWII. This was the place where czechoslovakian paratroopers were hiding after attacking Heydrich. There is a small museum downstairs. If you are interested WWII (especially resistance in Czechoslovakia) this is a good place to visit. Entrance fee is low.
