One of the best things I saw whilst in prague. It does help if you have seen the film operation daybreak which tells the story, however the museum if free, has a lot of useful information and is very moving.
It pays a well deserved...More
This doesn’t really get much of a mention in the guide books but it should be in the top three places to visit in Prague. The displays are excellent the church/crypt are exactly as they where including bullet holes and blood stains, such a sad...More
I'm getting tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat just thinking about our visit here. A friend sent me a message telling us to go and see it and am I so glad he did. This is a tale of true bravery,...More
Before you go into the crypt, there's a lot of information that provides the history and context of the Anthropoid mission in a wall-mounted exhibit. I suggest taking the time to read it. The crypt itself is basically unchanged but contains memorials to the men...More
I felt so inspired and yet so sad as I entered this famous piece of history’s past. There was a chronological story displayed of the events that led up to the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich. The brave Czech men were true heroes and the Crypt...More
1942 - the year when Czech and Slovakian paratroopers, working in conjunction with the Czech resistance and the British Special Operations Executive, made their (ultimately) successful attempt on Reinhard Heydrich's life - may seem a long time ago, but the events which took place at...More
after visiting the excellent museum over the road it should be remembered that the patriots hidden in the crypt were only there because of the bravery of the people in the church who at great peril to themselves and their families allowed the soldiers to...More
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
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 theatres. National Theatre 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
