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.

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

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres 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
