An opportunity to see at first hand where the final stand of the Czech paratroopers was. Seeing the bullet holes, the window where the Nazi’s tried to flood the basement brought home the stand they made as shown in the film Anthropoid.

OVERALL: The crypt memorial and preserved exterior bullet holes bring Operation Anthropoid to life. +’s: * Crypt’s flanged metal door - read about its inspiration (light into darkness, plane wing, etc.). It creates a atmosphere and knowing the background makes it all that more powerful....More

Such a wonderful tribute to the brave Czech soldiers who died here. The small museum before you enter the crypt is very informative and has artifacts from the time and actual items owned and used by the soldiers. The crypt part for us had an...More

I must admit that I did not know anything about this event but my friend had seen the movie and wanted to see it. This was a very sobering and emotional experience. Everyone should see this memorial.

Very poignant to view a place where history was actually made. In my opinion a must see whilst in Prague. Good displays and a tribute to these brave people both military and civilian.

This is a very well done but small museum about the Resistance fighters who assassinated Heydrich in Prague. Very informative and touching displays. The museum is primarily a series of storyboards with some photos and a lot of reading. You can also go into the...More

This is a beautiful memorial to Czech hero's who died for their country and the free world. It is best to watch Anthropoid (or read about Operation Anthropoid) before going to this memorial in Prague. It is beautiful. Very, very well done. Simple, yet powerful....More

One of the best things I saw whilst in prague. It does help if you have seen the film operation daybreak which tells the story, however the museum if free, has a lot of useful information and is very moving. It pays a well deserved...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

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
