Its not often that you can be touched by something that happened before you were born but this simple, honest tale seems to affect all who visit. Clearly documented tableaux in pictures, quotes and prose provides the context for this event in a stark and...More

The scarfice of several thousand people, torture of children, desolation of villages - not just down to Nazis - but spinless appeasers like England's Chamberlain & France in the 1938 "Munich Agreement" that "gave" much of Czech to the Nazis to try & buy "Peace...More

A very simple and small museum but packed with information and incredulous footage and descriptions of the animal Heydrich and the phenomenal toll the Nazis took on the population after his assasination. Whole villages and people wiped out and off the map, quite unbeleivable. I...More

If you are a WW2 or history buff, this is a place for you. These brave paratroopers pulled off the killing of a butcher and paid the ultimate sacrifice. The crypt is eerie and from the outside the bullet holes still abound.

A fitting tribute do the heroes who sacrificed their lives for the war effort. Chilling to still see the bullet holes in the wall and read the story about their mission and the aftermath. Can’t believe they were then betrayed by their own?

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
