This museum tells the story of brave Czech paratroopers who killed SS-Obergrupenführer Reinhard Heydrich in the Operation Anthropoid. Jan Kubiš and Josef Gabčík escaped to this church and the crypt under the church together with five more paratroopers and 20 days later they died here in battle against 700 Nazi soldiers.

Second world war and Heydrich's assassination are part of Czech's/Prague's history. You will experience lots of (cruel) details of the resistance, the assassination and the retaliation! Takes you about 1 h and it's for free.

One of the best little museums you'll ever visit. Whilst small and simple it tells the story exceptionally well before you go into the crypt. Just a shame that there are some loud tour guides in there; there are signs asking for respect and silence...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
