I found St Cyril Cathedral an interesting, yet sombre experience, reflecting on those who gave there lives for something they seriously believed in. The little museum is well laid out explaining the history of the 7 paratroopers who gave their lives for something they seriously...More

Great WWII history inside this church, related to the Hyndrich (#2 to Hitler) assassination in Prague 1942. The British operators were holed up in the crypt after their mission and eventually died there after being turned in by traitors amidst the killing spree and siege...More

I had heard of the crypt and the assassin of Heydrich. But I couldn't imagine that visiting this crypt under the "Cyril & Methodius" could raise such strong feelings. It contains rather few items, but together it almost took my breath away.

Read up on the history before you go. The battle of the crypt brilliantly portrayed in 2 films. Makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Must go again.

Most guided tours also contain this location, not just for the church, but for its remarkable history during WW II. During the 'Anthropoid' operation, 7 paratroopers succeeded in killing Heydrich, and then they hid in the crypt of this church. The Nazi retaliation was very...More

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
