This Orthodox church is not only memorable due to the struggle of Czech paratroopers with German occupiers but also serves as a concert hall.

Truly identifies the traumatic events of the second world war. A fascinating history of the brave fighters of the Czech Army and the effect the assassination of Heidrich had on people and villages in the area.

This church saw the final end to the heroic Czechoslovakian paratroopers who held out here against the Nazis. They assassinated the third top Nazi Heydrich and paid with their lives. You can walk around the crypt and see the bullet holes, and there is a...More

Having watched the film Anthropoid and read Hhhh by Laurent Binet, we decided to visit this church. It’s a wonderful church with a museum and crypt below. The museum was very informative. It’s free but I would strongly suggest making a donation.

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

A review I submitted after visiting Prague. (5 Replies)
I have written a number of reviews over the years for which Trip Advisor have heaped praise upon me for helping fellow travellers. However, I now have an issue with TA as to why they have not published my review of the St Cyril crypt after a recent visit to Prague, merely telling me to follow certain guidelines when writing reviews. My review read as follows:- "St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral Prague A memorial to some heroes and martyrs of WW11 494779482 (TA reference) ...More
