History, Hitler, second world war, Russia Chunks of history can be found here The meaning of the church is irrespective of its cathedral character and is more social than religious

You can learn a lot from reading the very-well written panels at the basement of the church telling about the struggle of Czechoslovakia in WW2 and operation Anthropoid, aiming to kill the nazi official Heydrich. The crypt contains the busts of the paratroopers who sacrificed...More

I've been to Prague many times but never been able to see inside the building. The exterior gives a sense of the events of the war and occupation.

We sought out this church after having seen the film about the assassination of Rienhard Hydrich. The free exhibition showed graphically the heroism of those involved and their sad end. Especially moving was the art exhibition leading into the crypt.

Gave it five stars and we were there on a Monday and it was closed, but visiting the outside and seeing the bullet holes made it worth it. And in a convenient location near the lopsided building on the river so it's easy to find.

Just be aware it closes promptly at 5 pm so you really need to get there by 4 pm to give yourself time to see everything
