National monument to the heroes of the Heydrich era
Specialisation: An authentic site of a key event of World War two in Prague
A less-well-known museum which holds the honorary top spot on the rankings of the TripAdvisor portal. This is housed in an authentic location – in the crypt of the Church of St. Cyril and Methodius on Resslova – a hiding place kept secret for a long time which was provided by the Czech Orthodox Church to Czechoslovak parachutists from 27.5.1942 until 18.6.1942 after the attack on Reinhard Heydrich. The Anthropoid military operation against Heydrich was organised by the Czechoslovak government in exile in London and is one of the “most important acts of resistance on a Europe-wide scale” (V. Havel, 1992).
You will find this location very easily – all you have to do is find the Prague landmark known as the “Dancing House” and the church is located nearby. It can again be reached from our hotel Kampagarden in the centre of Prague with a short walk along the riverbank.
