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.

Harrowing story of incredible bravery. This museum is excellent. Displays are in Czech and English, the staff are informative too. The displays are authentic and interesting. It's probably essential to read up a bit on the story beforehand.

Having seen the film Operation Daybreak my partner and I wanted to see where it actually happened while in Prague. Nothing can prepare you for the feeling on entering the crypt and shutting yourzelf off from the outside world, the seeing the 7 busts and...More

First off, it is FREE. A small museum but tells the story of the heroes well. To actually be in the crypt where those men hid out and see the bullet holes was a bit chilling. So glad I went. Really close to the tram...More

The museum is very informative and outlines in great detail not only the incredible mission that those brave Paratroopers completed but also the effect that it had on those on the population of Prague and surrounding areas. A poignant and truly worthwhile visit. Thank you...More

An incredible and moving piece of history in Prague. The Church has done a nice job permitting a museum in the crypt to document this event. Wow!!

There is a fairly recent film called Anthropoid which tells the story quite well, although it is a bit graphic in places, but you learn so much more about this episode in Czech recent history by visiting this church and it's crypt

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
