Known as Operation Anthropoid the attack occurred on the 27th May 1942 and the history of this attack and subsequent events are well documented.... More

This is first class and if visiting Prague, this really is a total must to visit. It shows the last stance of the commandos who hid there after assassinating Hydrich. The bullet holes are still in the wall outside the church after the gun fight with the SS. Prague is amazing and has lots of history and this is one... More

I can recommend to visit the cellar under the cathedral. A bit of history hidden there, worth knowing!

The Cathedral crypt, now as museum/memorial, to to the seven Czech paratroopers who were cornered there after they assassinated the Nazi leader in the Czech Republic - Reinhard Heydrich in 1942 (they shot themselves rather than surrender) This is well worth the vist.

After doing the Word War II in Prague tour, we took a tram to St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral to view the crypt. It has an excellent exhibition and I had some sense of the paratroopers' last moments there and it was a very a deep, moving experience.

I have been so many times to this place. It reminds me Czechoslovakia history and people who fought in resistance in such a dark time. This is a place where they fought to their last breath. Who is not familiar with the story I recommend a book HhhH from Binet or now a new movie Antrophoid. After reading / watching... More

The crypt below the cathedral is a memorial to the Czech paratroopers involved in the assassination of Heydrich in WW11. It's well set out, informative and very touching. Entry is free, but donations are welcome.

For such a small area to have such an historic story rebound around its walls is so rare. The story of the soldiers involved in Anthropoid (the assassination of Reynhard Heidrich) is elegantly told through museum panels in the entrance vestibule before you venture down into the crypt where the story finished in a bloodbath. You cant help be hit... More

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.
