Yes, the church is beautiful but we made the pilgrimage because of what happened there in WWII Operation Anthropoid. The cathedral was the scene of the last stand of a number of Czech and Slovak patriots who, in Operation Anthropoid, had assassinated Reinhard Heydrich, the...More

Small free museum below the church which is dedicated to the lives of the Czech soldiers who died in there attempts to kill Nazi Heydrich. The crypt displays a moving tribute in the area they all ultimately took their own lives.

The bullet holes on the outside of the church bring home the reality of world war 2 to those too young to experience war. The bravery of the resistance is expertly display.

What a moving, emotional but harrowing experience. A small museum with some original SOE documents telling the story of Operation Anthropoid - the assignation of Reinhard Heydrich, the top Nazi in what was then Czechoslovakia, in 1942. Over 6,000 people were killed in the immediate...More

The cathedral itself is small but the main reason for visiting is the National Memorial in the crypt below. Reviewed separately but suffice to say, don't miss it.
