This cathedral had an excellent exhibition about Operation Anthropoid - the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Prague during world war 2. The actual assassination itself was carried out in the Prague district of Liben (you can find exactly where on the maps in the exhibition) but the soldiers who carried it out made their last stand in this cathedral. You can visit the crypt where the Germans tried but failed to capture the soldiers alive - most committed suicide after the Germans used tear gas and flooded the crypt. Well worth a visit.
