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

A big piece of history worth going to see. Really well kept and free admission. A nice tribute to the fallen soldiers.

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
