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.
My husband and I visited the church and crypt on our visit to Prague having recently watched Anthropoid the movie. There is no entry fee and there is detailed information provided. certainly worth a visit. There is a box available for donations towards upkeep of...More
The history behind this church is amazing. I saw the movie Anthropoid a few years ago and was determined to visit the church when I found out it was still in existence. The church looks almost exactly like it does in the movie (only a...More
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
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
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.

Buy a transport ticket from the desk in the arrivals hall. Take bus 119 to Nadrazi Velaslavin, take the Metro into the City Centre. The one ticket once you validate it when you get on the bus will also cover you on metro and trams. Consider a 3 day ticket if you plan a short trip. The people a the ticket counter will advise you. By far the quickest and cheapest way. Taxis are ok, but cost too much
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

It doesn't read like a personal experience. That's what comes to my mind
