The incredible story of the assassination of Heydrich by a group of Czech resistance fighters and access to the church crypt where they were massacred by the Nazis after being informed on by a member of their own group. This is a key historical event for the Czechs and should be more well known than it is.

If you are WW2 history lovers like my partner and I, you'll love this. Not well advertised at all, but well worth the find. No entry fee, but donations welcome. You can't help but feel moved by this.

A place to be visited if you're in Prague. The history and stories of the war emirate as you walk through the lower hiding place. Unfortunately, unable to enter the church.

After watching the film 'Anthropoid' we decided to visit the church during our planned visit to Prague. If you're planning to visit the church I would recommend watching the film before your visit. The small exhibition to the Czech paratroopers, resistance and citizens who suffered is very well presented and emotive. When you stand in the crypt it's difficult to... More

It’s a shame the Chez people don’t make more of this place. It should be sign posted all around Prague. A very quite, peacefully place which has see such trauma and heroism. A must for every one

After watching the film Anthropoid, this really brought the whole story together and gave an idea of what it was all really like. Would highly recommend if interested in the history of Prague.

We only went here because I'd seen it on trip advisor. It's not advertised at all and we found it quite difficult to find. We walked passed it once and had to go back. We were so glad we did though. On one review it says you only need about half an hour but my husband and I were in... More

Nice church building but the real 'find' is to go just around the corner and visit the crypt with the wartime monument and displays .

As someone extremely interested in operation Anthropoid this was a must see. The actual crypt was extremely bleak, cold and gloomy on a cold winters day in Prague. Brutal to think of the men who knew they were going to die being trapped inside it. Brave patriots immortalised in a very good way. Must visit. Rip.

This is a very interesting and moving place.It obviously has great historical significance to the Czech people,and should be better known internationaly.The small museum is very informative,both about the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich,and the Nazi reprisals for this.The personal stories about the men who took part in operation Anthropoid and their final hours is both moving and heroic.These were very...

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
