Fell upon this place whilst researching things to do in Prague. 1) it’s free 2) it’s super interesting & learnt about the Czech resistance movement against the nazis that I didn’t know before. It’s really well explained & you can visit the crypt.

A very humbling experience. These heroes of the Czechoslovakian people died here. They fought a cruel invader and in the end provided hope to there people.
