We were very glad to have made it to St Cyril’s church which itself is lovely with wonderful devotional icons. We were lucky too to be bystanders to a happy family during baptism of their child. But it is the exhibit in the crypt morning...More

Stopped in as I had read about the events before our trip. A very somber shrine to heros of the Czech Resistance. the crypt entrance really puts you into their shoes. The exhibits in the foyer are done well and really help tell the story.

Incredible story of the Czech resistance fighters trained in Britain who were parachuted in during WWII and assassinated head Nazi Heydrich, and took refuge in the church's cellar. The brutal response from the Nazis was shocking and inhuman.
