After seeing the movie Anthropoid in Canada 2 months before our trip to Prague, we were on a mission to find this Cathedral, which wasn't easy, walked right past it. It is understated, free entry and very few tourists there on the day we were there. I think for us, it will probably be the most memorable and moving site... More

We walked for miles on our first attempt to visit the Cathedral. On arrival, a Monday, there was a notice to say it was shut. This was the first we knew of it, despite having consulted our guide books. Nil Desperandum!! On our second attempt a few days later we got in. Photographs and written accounts told the story of...

This place was beautiful and luckily not packed with big groups when we went so we got to read the displays and take photos.

Very moving simple church, with a respectful museum which is free (but please donate). You can go in the crypt, which was smaller than I remembered in the first 'Daybreak' film (though I was smaller then!). No doubt will be mobbed when 'Anthropoid' becomes big. Puts all life's trouble in perspective when you see how these chaps fought and died... More

If you are interested in WW2 this is a must see place, what went on here was unbelievable and it is a very moving experience, also one of the very few places that is free.

Having an interest in history and vaguely remember seening a film about the assassination of Heydrich by British trained Czech army volunteers, a visit was well in order. The Shrine to the assassins s in the Crypt, where they took their lives, rather than being captured. There are Busts of the heroes and a brief description of the siege. On... More

Had never heard of Operation Anthropoid, but the display explained things perfectly. Mostly pictures and a lot of reading, but incredibly informative. There are no signs to this church at all and we actually went to the church across the street, but then saw the open door and a small sign for this museum; hopefully there will be better signage...

On my second visit to Prague with my parents in tow, they told me about their plans to visit this place and I'm so glad they did, as I would consider this essential as part of the history and fabric of Prague. Knowing that the actions of these men helped stop a greater massacre of the Slovak people as part... More

This is an incredible place with an incredible story of the assasination of Heydrich by Czech paratroopers. Its a story that you will want to hear and its both mioving and surreal. It was though provoking and mesmerizing at times for me. I found it a strangely compelling experience and not one I would forget. it has a wonderful crypt... 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.
