Anyone of a certain age and with knowledge of world war 2 history will surely want to visit this church.This is where the czech patriots were cornered by the germans,shell and bullet holes can still be seen at the vent to the crypt.Unfortunately the crypt was closed when we visited(closed on mondays) but the church is still worth a visit.

“Deeply moving”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I am a regular visitor to Prague and Im aware of its history and of the particular event that makes this church so meaningful to Czechs. Have now visited. A very moving experience. A link to the past which now has a prominent place in my heart in this special city.

“awesome”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The art nouveau decoration in this church as well as the tryptics were glorious. Only Saint Chapelle tops this church for me.

“Impactful and inspiring”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We visited this church after an excellent tour of Prague in the period 1938 - 1945, just before and during WWII. Thus, we had learned much about Operation Anthropoid when seven brave members of the Czech resistance critically injured the butcher of Prague, SS Commandant Rudolph Heydrich. This church hid the seven soldiers after the attempted assassination of Heydrich. Because we had so much context for our visit to this church, it was incredibly impactful, especially the crypt where the men hid. However, I could see how, without the context, this might not be as appreciated, despite the excellent storyboards. Really, you don't go here to visit the church. You go to learn about the 7 parachutists. But it is worth a visit if you are interested in WWII history.
