So how can I not rate it anything but, excellent. Seriously, worth a look at the display of the events surrounding the Czechs who parachuted into the country when the Nazis were occupying to assassinate Heydrich. If you're short for time, better to pass on this one.

On an early Sunday morning walk we visited the church as the orthodox priest was arriving and preparations were underway for the services. We are always very interested in the history of the places we visit, and particularly this period in history, so we returned to visit the museum in the crypt shortly after 9am. We were the only ones there.

We found the exhibits with black and white photographs portrayed well the context of the assassination and its horrific aftermath of reprisals. The memorials through the door at the back were very moving as were the details such as of the only entrance from street level back in 1942 and the bullet marks still to be seen.

We though the museum a very poignant reminder of human cruelty, heroism and betrayal.

Finding and getting to this church/museum will require a bit of an effort but it was well worth it to me. This place is a must for anyone that has a love or at least a fascination with history. I don't know that I want to provide too many specific details about this attraction because I think it is best appreciated by your own individual journey. But I will tell you that I found it quite moving and you get a sense for how important this story is to the Czech people. It is a story about some WW II heroes that I don't believe is widely known outside of the Czech Republic.

Maybe I chose the wrong day - it was a Wednesday. Streetscape value for sure, but no idea what the interior is like.

The museum here was not quite what I expected. It is obvious they subscribe to the new theory of museums that are long on text and short on artifacts. Still worth a visit though.
