This really touched me emotionally. I had seen the movie, which the guide at the church said was not accurate, but it did give me feeling of what happened here. These were brave, courage, patriotic men who should never be forgotten.

After seeing the movie, it was amazing to see the place first hand. They did a beautiful job with the history and presentation. Inspiring to see how people fought selflessly against hatred and tyranny.

we wanted to see this place after seeing the film Anthropoid, it was not the easiest place to find but when we did it was well presented and made for an easy museum to view. We would recommend to all to visit.

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
