The church crypt is the final chapter for the Czech Soldiers in Op Anthropoid. It can be completed in 45 mins easily and is a piece of history not to be missed. Crypt Closed Mondays, open Tue-Sat 0900-1700

If you know the story of " Anthrapoid " this museum and church are a must see. Very sad but interesting episode of events in Prague's more recent history . Very good , compact and free.

This is an interesting museum, but the information is dense in its display - long pieces of text with a few artifacts to highlight the content. The memorial to the paratroopers who died during Operation Anthropoid is lovely. However there were lots of tours coming...More

This Orthodox church is not only memorable due to the struggle of Czech paratroopers with German occupiers but also serves as a concert hall.

Truly identifies the traumatic events of the second world war. A fascinating history of the brave fighters of the Czech Army and the effect the assassination of Heidrich had on people and villages in the area.

I’d been aware of the Second World War history of the church crypt and the partisans before visiting Prague. I’d decided to pay a visit and was not disappointed, there is a very good chronological time line of the events and circumstances that lead to...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
